Description

Bunsenite on matrix of nickeline and other nickel arsenides with a little pitchblende. Radioactivity is very low.

This little piece is an absolute rarity. Worldwide there are only 5 locations - and this is from the type locality!

A former larger piece from a very old collection (ex. Reg.Rat Fritz Pribitzer, Graz-Hudritz, Sanzingasse 5, Austria; via Richard Hauck, Schneeberg 1880-1947) has unfortunately fallen into small pieces.

This one piece I sell but the others with the original label will stay in my collection.

This auction includes a copy of the old lable and an XRD-log.
