ID: CC12490
A stunning specimen of the silver-antimony sulphosalt Pyrargyrite as equant composite crystals on an ironed-stained quartzite matrix, from the Siegerland region of Rhineland-Palatinate state.  The Pyrargyrite crystals form highly reflective, almost black metallic crystals to 6 mm long with sharply defined prism faces, terminations and edges.  Under magnification and strong transmitted light ruby-red tinges are seen at the face edges.  Scattered over the matrix are many brassy-golden spheres of Marcasite and clusters of hemispherical Sphalerite crystals, themselves ruby-red in transmitted light.  A superb specimen from Siegerland in Germany.
