Cylindrite, a lead-tin-iron-antimony sulphosalt, derives its name from the long cylindrical crystals it forms, and this fine miniature is a wonderful example from its type locality at the Santa Cruz mine close to PoopĆ³ town in the Oruro Department of Bolivia.  Bright lustrous silver Cylindrite crystals completely cover and pervade a core of dark grey massive sulphosalt matrix, probably massive Cylindrite or a groundmass of similar composition.  The cylindrical crystals measure up to 3.5 cm by 1 to 2 mm in diameter and form concentric shells of overgrown cylindrical layers.  This is a gorgeous and exceptionally fine example of this species with this classic distinct habit.  The specimen comes with a thin card Dr F. Krantz stock label and is ex. the Josef Clemente Collection of southern Germany.
