Who would believe that this opaque blue mineral is a silver species?! Boleite is, however, one of the most beautiful of the rare silver species and has a long history. This small cabinet shows off a fine cluster of lustrous, faintly translucent, indigo-blue Boleite crystals, to 1,1 cm across, aesthetically emplaced on matrix. After viewing many photos of Boleite on matrix on MINDAT or in the media, you will see that it is apparent that this combination of size and richness on one specimen is rare for the deposit. Boleite is a very rare silver species that only here forms large crystals in this quality. After its first discovery in the late 1800s, it was a classic for Mexico, but a little off the beaten track as far as geography goes, compared to the rest of the Mexican minerals we see on the market. THis is in ny case a super piece with great aesthetics. Ex Dr. H.-J. Wilke collection
