ID: CC11269
From the classic mining district around Příbram in Bohemia, Czech Republic, a single upright standing curved blade of silver Bournonite (lead-copper antimoniate) with a bright metallic lustre.  The crystal measures 1.5 x 0.8 x 0.4 cm and sits in a bed of equant, stubby colourless Quartz crystals.  Partly attached to the Bournonite is a cluster of micro, slightly curved rhombohedral white crystals, most probably Dolomite.  One section of the Bournonite crystal could have a chip missing, based on what appears may be a fractured surface, but this could be a natural parting of the gaps within the ‘cog-wheel’ habit of the crystal, it is difficult to tell.
