Description

A very fine german classic from the Freiberg mining district: Arsenopyrite crystals on massive ore. The surface consists of the flat but little rounded terminations of the crystals due to their parallel growth; they have a light bronze metallic color.
Comes with beautiful Krantz pen and ink label, dated 1880-1900, and a personal exact locality notice of Dr. Fuchs. This specimen is extremely hard to photograph due to the strong metallic reflections and is much better in person!
Weight: 365 grams
