I could be wrong, but I think it is an icon that is partly covered in silver.  If that is the case, I think this may be what the OP was looking for:

As Salpy said its one of those Icons that is entirly coverd in silver or gold with the faces and hands being the only parts not covered I think they are really neat they really leave off a nice shine in the candle light of my Icon corner I have a couple already and have been looking for a crucifixion one for quite a while I have googled and yahood and I cant seem to find one. And I know they are out there because Ihave seen pics of them In books.

I have seen the icons like that in the past, however my own search  on the internet did not come up with that particulat crucifixion in Riza. Perhaps writing directly with  the seller may be more productive, if they have access the Riza icons they may be able to locate it for you.  Greek Tourist sites also often sell "handcrafted" icons with Riza.
