PYRARGYRITE – FREIBERG -EX MARK FEINGLOS COLLECTION

$600.00

For sale is a classic old European specimen of pyrargyite from Freiberg, Germany. Highly lustrous crystal with a silver glow, and a couple of small areas showing red color, sit on matrix. Matrix specimens are not very common from this old location. Classic and excellent old-time  material from this historic district. I would guess that this specimen is well over 100 years old, thou I can not prove it. Mark Feinglos was a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic amateur mineralogist, he was  the second recipient of the Pinch Medal in 2003.
