Silver Ps. After Dyscrasite
Pribram, Czech Republic
Small Cabinet, 9.1 x 8.1 x 4.2 cm
Ex. Ernest Schlichter
This specimen is from one of Europe's old and classic ore mines and is unusually large and fine for the material. All around a matrix of massive quartz is a spongy, jackstraw, intergrown crystal growth of silver. The longest crystal spear exceeds 2 cm. The silver has replaced previous crystals of Dyscrasite, and preserved the crystal habit of the former species. This is unusually large and rich for hte material. The pseudos are also much more uncommon than unaltered Dyscrasite, and have not been found in a long time
