Freibergite on Pyrite Siete Suyos Mine, Chocaya-Animas, Atocha-Quechisla

About the item

Silver likes to combine with all sorts of other elements - Freibergite is a prime example of this kind of 'mineral miscegenation', combining Silver with: Copper, Iron, Antimony, Arsenic and Sulfur, all in  mineral. Like greed and megalomania, some things are always part of the picture (Silver and Sulfur) and some are variable depending on shadowy underground dynamics and shifting alliances: (Cu, Fe, Sb & As). Good Freibergites are about as rare as hen's teeth, or, good politicians, and they are consequently valued accordingly. These sharp, one-inch Freibergites are a wonderful sight as they dance on a field of bright, sparkling Pyrites. There is a custom labeled acrylic base. RHC #6830, acquired 2000[Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]HID07601242017
