Backlit Pyrargyrite Crystal
A large thumbnail specimen featuring a complexly grown, complete-all-around Pyrargyrite with excellent form. The elongation of the main axis is highly unusual and aesthetic. As well, it is very gemmy and transparent when backlit. Classic old material from a mid-1990s find here. Ex. Jim White. The top photo shows the crystal backlit, and the bottom photo is under normal lighting.
