- Native Arsenic
- Cabinet, 11.2 x 8.0 x 5.5 cm
- Baia de Aries (Offenbanya), Alba Co., Romania
- Ex. Giancarlo Fioravanti; Franz Meyer
A display-quality cabinet specimen of virtually solid, botryoidal Native Arsenic from Romania. The luster on the dark grey Arsenic ranges from good to high, and the botryoids range up to about 4 cm. These botryoids overlap, creating this impressive specimen. Displayable from several angles. Ex Franz Meyer, 1970, labeled as from Botes Mine. However Botes does not list arsenic as a native species, in MINDAT. We are assuming that a mine in Offenbanya is more likely the origin.
