An outstanding Hessite from Romania. Matt grey Hessite (a rare Silver Telluride mineral) forms flat growth of crystals as well as an intricate coral-like formation, intergrown with several silvery Sphalerite crystals of bright lustre. The Hessite and Sphalerite are balanced on a matrix of prismatic Quartz crystal to create an aesthetic specimen. This locality has produced the best of species for Hessite, mined in the mid 1800s, with specimens of large well formed crystals. The rich coverage and well formed crystals make this one of the best we have seen for sale in years.
