Pyrargyrite With Native Arsenic

$650.00   €616  £530.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC2408
Well-formed crystals of Pyrargyrite measuring to 3 mm are richly clustered and scattered in and over a botryoidal shell like formation of Native Arsenic.  The Pyrargyrite crystals are mostly prismatic, deep ruby red with flashes of bright ruby red, while the Native Arsenic has a yellowish patina to its surface.  Under magnification, at least two further silver sulfosalts can be seen, one forming cogwheel-like crystals, the other with a slender prismatic habit.  An aesthetic and fascinating small miniature to study from the well-known Samson mine in Lower Saxony, Germany.  This specimen is accompanied with two labels, one probably at least 100 years old.
