Rich silver specimens from the Erzgebirge are not common on the mineral market, especially with such a dimension! This item is labeled with “Schlema-Schneeberg” and the year 1958! You will be surprised about the weigh, more than 400g! It consists mainly of oxidized silver (probably acanthite) with “fresh” silver in the middle. Some matrix is attached, also. This is truly a very food sample of this historic mining area in central Europe.
