ID: CC19573
The silver antimonide Dyscrasite forms magnificent and showy skeletal crystals to 4 cm long over a naturally etched sooty black core of ribbed Native Arsenic.  This quite magnificent specimen is from Uranium Mine No. 21 at Háje, Příbram, in the Czech Republic.  The aesthetic is enhanced by the metallic gunmetal-grey Dyscrasite sitting proud of the Native Arsenic, so giving a very three-dimensional appearance.  The specimen sits beautifully on a thin matrix of creamy-white Calcite and although one face lends itself naturally for display, all four sides are equally rich and showy.  A museum-grade example of Dyscrasite with Native Arsenic from this world-famous mining district.
