Silver, Dyscrasite
Uranium Mine No. 21, Pribram, Central Bohemia Region, Bohemia (Bohmen; Boehmen), Czech Republic
Small Cabinet, 5.7 x 4.7 x 3.0 cm
An AMAZINGLY sculptural specimen from Pribram. It looks like a piece of art mounted on a custom-make base, but what we have is native silver wires and plates pseudomorphing dyscrasite crystals beautifully set atop banded matrix. A classic, old-time and one of the best pieces from the Josef Vajdak Collection, a Pribram specialist.
