Silver Pseudo. After Dyscrasite
Pribram, Bohemia, Czech Republic
Miniature, 5.6 x 4.0 x 3.3 cm
Ex. Martin Lewadny
Superb and very sharp pseudomorph Silver "needles" up to about 1.8 cm have replaced previous crystals of dyscrasite. The Silver crystals, interspersed throughout the matrix, have survived remarkably well, with little damage, and certainly none to the main crystals. The patina is flat and the color a mottled grey. An excellent specimen, and CLASSIC old european pseudomorph style from this now defunct locality, which was among the pre-eminent silver mining regions of europe for 400 years.
