Pyrargyrite (ruby Silver) on Calcite
Schlema, Erzgebirge
Saxony, Germany
4.7 x 3.8 CM (miniature)
price: $385
Spring 2013

A dense cluster of shining crystals with some mixed sulphides sits on a crystallized calcite matrix. Color is fairly dark but good light on some areas picks up the expected red colors of the Pyrargyrite. The Calcites also have red inclusions that may be ruby silver too. Largest xls are about 4-5mm, many are damage free. The loupe also finds one very small elongated red crystal near the bottom that looks more like a Proustite. A good European classic location piece.
