Proustite with Pyrite

$750.00   €632  £570.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC12542
Deep claret-red crystals of the silver sulphosalt Proustite richly adorn a 7 x 5 cm surface of a massive and part-crystallised tan Dolomite matrix.  This very fine specimen is from Jáchymov in the Krušné Hory Mountains of Bohemia in the Czech Republic; Krušné Hory translates to “Ore Mountains”.  The Proustite forms semi-translucent, perfectly developed prismatic crystals up to 2 mm in length of which there are probably 100 intermixed with similar sized crystals of brassy-golden Pyrite.  A terrific example.
