Uranium Mine No. 21, Pribram, Bohemia, Czech Republic

Ex. Martin Lewadny
An amazing and interesting Silver specimen. The beak is a THICK 2.5 cm Silver rope attached to a Calcite head, and the neck band consists of euhedral, partly-gemmy Sphalerite crystals intermixed with more Silver and iridescent drusy Pyrite. A very cool and dramatic specimen from a very famous locality! This is an EXCEPTIONALLY thick silver rope for Pribram, to be compared to its best.
