RM598   Stephanite with Galena, Calcite and Pyrite

Banská Štiavnica (Schemnitz), Banská Štiavnica, Banská Bystrica, Slovakia

Nice specimen from the former mineral collection of Henri-Léon Ungemach (1879-1936). The sample corresponds to the label. Sometimes is difficult this relation, or specimen has no number on or number do not match.

The cavity is covered by scalenohedral calcite crystals, and on them groups of brilliant galena and pyrite. We can observe some idiomorphic crystals, with defined faces and dull luster, of stephanite. A sample with its own history.

 


Size: 6,8 x 3,7 x 3,2 cm.
Main crystal: < 1 mm.
Found in 1890's.

Ex-col. Henri-Léon Ungemach (1879-1936).
