ID: CC19871
An interesting miniature of crystallised Argentopyrite and Pyrargyrite from the Pöhla-Tellerhäuser mine in the Schwarzenberg District of Saxony, Germany.  Formerly in East Germany, this was one or the worlds largest uranium mines working a Cambrian-Ordovician polymetallic skarn.  Well developed crystals of both species measure up to about 2 mm over a creamy white matrix with an earthy texture and lustre.  Magnification is required to differential the two crystal habits as both are a similar metallic grey, one perhaps a little more silver than the other.
