STRIKING, OLD-TIME specimen from the famous mining district of Pribram, Czech Republic. This elegant display specimen is composed of two fabulous sprays of Silver crystals that have completely replaced the original Dyscrasite. The crystals average about 1.5 cm long, with the Silvers having a dark, sparkly, metallic luster. Each full, attractive cluster sits perfectly on the ore matrix, with the two 3-dimensional clusters balancing and complementing each other perfectly. This is a rich, very showy specimen of native Silver pseudomorphs after large Dyscrasite crystals, with some of the best aesthetics I have ever seen for this particular occurrence and in this size range.
