Product Description

For sale is a group of gemmy ( a few of the crystals) orpiment crystals from Quiruvilca mine, Peru. Unlike a lot of specimen from this locality these crystals sit on a solid matrix. these crystals are VERY sharp and have fine luster to them, which is uncommon for this locality, add to the gem quality and you have a great orpiment specimen at a reasonable price. These pieces came out about six years ago and nothing of this quality has been seen since. I have been holding on to this one , because I find it very esthetic to my eyes. Please compare our prices and remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
