A remarkably impressive and large display specimen of this rare and highly sought after material from this intermittent locality in the famous Cripple Creek District in Colorado. The piece was collected by Rich Fretterd in 2011. A rich scattering of bright silvery-white Calaverite crystals can be seen all over the display side of the piece, which are intergrown / associated with rarely seen deep purple Fluorite. I have never handled or offered such an impressive cabinet display specimen of this particular material from Cripple Creek, and arguably the best aspect of the piece is that it was trimmed in a way that allows it to be displayed upright without the aid of clay or a base. For you telluride collectors out there, you KNOW how significant a piece like this is, and they seem to be rising in value every time I see them for sale at shows, which isn’t nearly as often as it was 10 years ago. Don’t miss out on this one, as it is nearly impossible to replace in today’s market.
