From the impressive find of 2004. This boom at the San Jose mine gave us a plethora of top notch sulfides, the likes of which may never be matched from any mine in Bolivia. This find produced record setting Andorite and Potosiite specimens, but also produced some of the finest Zinkenites ever found from any world locality. This specimen is a fairly large, sharp, lustrous, acicular spray of Zinkenite crystals. This is a first-rate Zinkenite specimen, and one of the best pieces from the find that I've handled. The vast majority of the Zinkenite specimens from this find were certainly not this attractive and so richly grouped together. I can say with a fair amount of certainty that it is unlikely we will ever see these superb Zinkenite specimens from San Jose again. I will say for certain that the piece is rather fragile and crumbly, so this piece must be handled with care. Additionally, special arrangements must be made with regard to shipping the piece. I feel that we can safely pack and ship the specimen, but I am requesting that the buyer pay for Express Mail shipping with insurance in case anything happens during transit. If you are uncomfortable with the piece being shipped, we will work with you to deliver the piece in person.
