Native Silver on Calcite

ID: CC20393

Delicate wires of charcoal-black tarnished Native Silver form rich clusters over the surface of a bed of small, creamy Calcite crystals from Jáchymov in Bohemia, the Czech Republic.  The Calcite forms 2 to 3 mm diameter nail-head crystals  over a flat plate of massive Calcite.  As well as the filigree-like Native Silver wires, granular Native Silver is mixed with the Calcite throughout the specimen’s base, together with cryptocrystalline brassy Chalcopyrite.

Ex. the Mineral Collection of Archduke Stephan Franz Viktor of Hungary (1817 to 1867), with a historic Archduke (Erzherzog) Stephan label incorporating his coat of arms.  This label measures 8.6 x 4.8 cm; it is complete (untrimmed) and is numbered 432/4.  A Carl Rumpff label, dated 1889 is glued to one side of the specimen plus.  This smaller sized Archduke label is in near perfect condition.
