ID: CC19871
This small miniature/large thumbnail is richly coated with metallic, brassy-bronze striated crystals of Argentopyrite averaging about 1 mm long, from the Pöhla-Tellerhäuser mine in the Schwarzenberg District of Saxony, Germany.  Scattered amongst these are many excellent euhedral crystals of the silver-antimony sulphosalt, Pyrargyrite, all of about 2 mm across, with a silver-grey patina and ruby-red glints.  A very fine specimen of both Argentopyrite and Pyrargyrite.
