Miniature, 3.7 x 3.0 x 2.8 cm
Schneeberg District, Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany

Scintillating, metallic, native bismuth microcrystals richly cover three sides of this very rich bismuth ore from the historic Schneeberg District of Germany. Heavy for its size, this is rich bismuth ore. Accompanied by an expertly handwritten, faded label from an older collection. The collection this came out of was a museum stash dating to prior to World War I.
