Dec 2018

A lustrous cluster of mostly Pyargyrite crystals that at first glance appear a silvery black color. Strong light shows some brilliant red zones of ruby silver, and with magnification are some classic twinned Polybasite crystals as well. Minimal matrix, the associated Sulphides are only seen with magnification. Some edge chipping is noted, not easy to see by naked eye (this is a brittle mineral ) but the main crystals are in fine condition, some with textbook forms. The Pyrargyrites have some unusual habits on this piece, it is an attractive small miniature with very bright flash., could trim to a very strong thumbnail if desired
