ID: CC19946
Micro-crystals of the rare silver-arsenic sulphosalt Xanthoconite form tiny clusters of orange-red to carmine-red over the surface of a dull, dark-grey Native Arsenic matrix.  This specimen is from Trebsko within the Příbram mining district of the Czech Republic.  The Native Arsenic forms botryoidal surfaces made-up from sub-mm diameter hemispheres over which the Xanthoconite has been deposited.  Two translucent golden-tan blades of likely Siderite lie adjacent the Xanthoconite.
