Pyrostilpnite

ID: CC14574
Pyrostilpnite is a rare silver-antimony sulphosalt and in this specimen, subparallel sheaf-like aggregates cover a 1 x 0.5 cm area on a grey-cream Calcite matrix.  From the St. Andreasberg mining district in the Harz mountains of Germany, although not recorded, the specimen is thought to be from the famous Samson mine. The Pyrostilpnite crystals are a metallic rose-gold to pale pink with a sub-metallic lustre.  Some massive, cleaved patches of Galena are distributed throughout the matrix.
