ID: CC20370
A steeply curved, 2 to 3 mm thick shell-like plate of gunmetal-grey Native Arsenic with its top convex surface smothered with iridescent micro-crystals. From the mining district surrounding St. Andreasberg in Harz, Lower Saxony, Germany, the sub-mm platy Native Arsenic crystals are covered in a patchwork of metallic peacock pink, mauve, blue, purple, green and brassy-gold iridescent colours.  

Ex. the Mineral Collection of Archduke Stephan Franz Viktor of Hungary (1817 to 1867), but does not have either the Archduke (Erzherzog) Stephan or small Carl Rumpff labels.  A small H. v. Stephan label, dated 1887 is glued to the specimen’s base.
