Excellent thumbnail piece with thick exceptional, well formend stacked pseudo-orthrhombic black crystals of Argyrodite to 4mm associated with orange Sphalerite. This is one of the better Argyrodite crystal groups we have seen. The specimen was in a plastic perky box with a stuck on label and a number.
