  Fancy Leadville Top.jpg - FANCY LEADVILLE - Unique fancy one-piece polished steel stick, faceted thimble and long thumb tab lever topped with a 7/16 in. cuboctahedron, 11 1/2 in. long, number 134 in Wilson & Bobrink’s Collector’s Guide to Antique Miners’ Candlesticks, ex-John Leahy collection(This stick was found in a shed at the rear of 112 East 10th Street, Leadville, CO. This house was known as the Abbott House.  Many of the old Victorians in that area were later converted to boarding houses, and were then known by the name of the landlord, not the original owner.  This location is right across the street from the Healy House.  The cuboctahedron on the thumb lever is an interesting feature.  Argentite (silver sulfide) and galena (lead sulfide) both occur with cuboctahedral crystal habits.  At temperatures less than 180 deg. C, argentite pseudomorphs to acanthite.)
