Argentopyrite With Proustite
Schlema, Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 4.0 x 3.0 cm
Ex. Rock Currier
An exceptional old-time specimen containing abundant argentopyrite as bronze-brown to gray-bronze, prismatic crystals and plates of pseudo-hexagonal twins. It is richly peppered with contrasting ruby red, scalenohedral single crystals and twins of proustite intergrown with and overgrowing calcite. Spectacular under the microscope!
