ID: CC20233
An aesthetic and interesting miniature of dendritically crystallised Native Silver dotted with small patches of Erythrite.  The Native Silver forms a hackly branching mass of framboidal dark to light grey Native Silver crystals with an open vuggy and highly porous structure.  The Erythrite, a hydrated cobalt arsenate, forms as pisolitic micro-spheres of bright powder candy pink with occasional intense cerise pink structures.  A most pleasing specimen from Měděnec in Bohemia, Czech Republic.
