Argentite on Calcite
Pribram, Bohemia, Czech Republic
Miniature, 5.1 x 5.1 x 2.0 cm
Ex. Richard Hauck
Sharp, lustrous argentite crystals to 9 mm nestled in a small pocket of quartz crystals on a massive quartz matrix. The largest argentite crystal appears to have been hollowed out or "hoppered" during formation yet is still well terminated. Unique, old European classics like this are very difficult to obtain.
