An old-timer with good silvery, equant to prismatic crystals of Miargyrite to 1mm iwth several Pyrargyrite crystals on drusy Quartz lined vug. There are no less than 15 subhedral to euhedral crystals on this specimen. I don't see too many of these ever on the market. The specimen originated with Scott Willaims (see prov tab), and was purchased by Don Phillips and then sold to McConlogue.
