Silver in peacock ore
All have a vein of plate silver running through the specimens.
are VERY highly mineralized
have very unique Iridescent coloration.
I donít know what the percentage of any of the metals and minerals are, as the mineralization varies so much even within the specimen, but I can tell you that it is rare and you will not likely never see anyone else selling a large, quality specimen like this.
Very nice addition to any collection.
peacock ore, comes from the bright, peacock-like colors on the
outside of the stone, but below a thin skin of purple and blue is a
rich gold color.
The specimens have a sheet
of native silver running through them!
EXTRAORDINARY QUALITY PIECES.
Silver has been mined for eons and has always been popular in
jewelry and for coinage. Only in the past hundred years however, has
the demand for silver been so great. The reason for this demand is
the use of silver in the photography industry, which takes advantage
of silver's reactivity to light. Native Silver is rare and much
silver is produced from silver-bearing minerals such as prousite,
pyrargyrite, acanthite, galena, etc. Specimens of Native Silver
usually consist of wires that are curved and intertwined together,
making an inspiring mineralogical curiosity.
