Niederschlema, shaft 38, Schlema-Hartenstein, Erzgebirge, Sajonia, Germany

Solid cluster of intergrown nickelskutterudite (formerly called chloanthite) from the historic Schlema-Hartenstein District.

Complex crystals, bright, with faces... A piece highly valued by mineralogists. From the Type Locality. Formerly in the collection of Gerd Resag. Only for "deep & dark collectors".
