Pyrargyrite with Argentopyrite and Native Arsenic

ID: CC10104

A complex specimen composed of concentric nested shell-like druses of light-grey Native Arsenic heavily overgrown by micro-crystals of silver-grey Argentopyrite and larger crystals of Pyrargyrite.  From the Samson mine at St Andreasberg in Lower Saxony, Germany, the  Argentopyrite appears as bright silver microcrystals, associated with Pyrargyrite crystals occur all over the specimen; many displaying their true blood-red colour.  An excellent specimen of silver sulphosalts and Arsenic from the Harz mining region of Germany.
