Eryrthrite (type locality) with Quartz and Pyrite
Schneeberg Distict, Erzgebirge
Saxony, Germany
5.8 x 4.8 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $180
new year 2021

A German classic specimen covered on all faces with very tiny crystals and crusts of Erythrite. This is the type locality for the mineral though it is not very common there. The underlying matrix is a heavy Cobalt rich mass that probably is Skutterudite or similar since some tiny cubic shapes can be made out under the crusts. A rich "Cobalt bloom" specimen that has some nice sparkle under strong lighting.
