Item Description

An OLD-TIME, very rich and showy silver ore specimen from the CLASSIC Czech locality of Jachymov in the famed Erzgebirge. Lustrous to sparkly, reddish-gray pyrargyrite richly covers all sides of the quartz-rich matrix. This fine piece is highlighted by the 2.1 cm, complex crystal cluster jauntily perched on the top-center of the piece and the 1.6 cm cluster on one side. Highly representative of the species and famous locale. Ex Richard Hauck Collection.
