Historical Sylvanite Speciman
Historical Sylvanite Speciman from Baia de Aries (Offenbánya), Alba Co., Romania
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description The label for this Sylvanite, dated 1835, is the same year the species was formally described to science! The original label name was "Schriftenz" if I read it right, with a note to the side that it "looked like Krennerite" added later (as that species was only identified in 1877) in a different pen. In any case, its a very rich, and attractive, specimen of Sylvanite with good size, coverage, and excellent crystals for this, the type locality.
Locality Baia de Aries (Offenbánya), Alba Co., Romania
Dimensions 11.1 x 7.6 x 3.7 cm
