ID: CC20252
A superb small miniature of equant lead-grey Hessite crystals form a piled-up cluster on top of a matrix of light-grey to milky-white Quartz crystals.  From the Anna mine at Botești, Zlatna, in Alba County, Romania, Hessite, a silver telluride (Ag2Te), forms excellent, well-defined monoclinic crystals, some of which are distorted to an elongated habit.  This is a very good example of Hessite and of its crystal morphology.
