ID: CC19836
A superb thumbnail of crystallised Proustite from the Schlema-Hartenstein District of Erzgebirgskreis in Saxony, Germany.  Proustite, a silver-arsenic sulphosalt, is often tarnished to opaque black, but this specimen, which has been carefully curated, retains its natural bright blood-red colour.  The Proustite is attached to an almost unnoticeable granular Quartz matrix and forms divergent crystals, some forming a semi-reticulated pattern.  When back-lit, the specimen is brilliant scarlet.  A superb Proustite.
