Ex. Rock Currier
A very good specimen named after its historic mine of origin, containing prismatic, steel-black, isolated and divergent sprays of <1 mm samsonite crystals and crystal fragments exhibiting dark red-brown internal reflections. Associated with drusy, boxworks of quartz and rare proustite-pyrargyrite grains. Much better under the microscope! Eric Asselborn label.
