Old-Time Proustite Thumbnail
Old-Time Proustite Thumbnail from Jáchymov, Krušné Hory Mts, Bohemia, Czech Republic
Collection John Betts - Fine Minerals
Description A superb, old-time Proustite thumbnail from the historic Josef Vajdak Collection. This is a classic, aesthetic, mountain peak cluster of gemmy, wine-red Proustite crystals from the famous St Joachimsthal District of the Erzgebirge, Czech Republic. The gorgeous, "ruby-silver" glows through the faces of the ice-like lustre on these sharp spires. The striking frontal view is very nearly pristine. Accompanied by a label from the Royal Bohemian Museum with a postulated 1860 collection date noted. Josef is a specialist collector and dealer in such things, now retired.
Locality Jáchymov, Krušné Hory Mts, Bohemia, Czech Republic
Dimensions 2.4 x 2.2 x 1.8 cm.
Specimen Grade C
