Pair of 18th Century Italian Angel Wings on Calcite Crystals with Sphalerite

US$3,500Asking Priceper set


Pair of 18th century Italian angel wings on calcite crystals with sphalerite in matrix and coordinating baroque pearls. The wings originated from a church in Liguria, Italy. The calcite crystal in sphalerite is from Elmwood Mine in Tennessee. It is an example of the world's finest crystallized calcite. With the unusual formation of sphalerite, it is unequaled by those from any other part of the world (referenced from the "American Mineral Treasure" book, pg. 337). The formation of the crystals emulates the angel wings. The baroque pearls also coordinate in shape and form with the wings.
