This specimen is a classic! It is a large fragment of native arsenic where a little of the arsenic has been dissolved away to expose crystals of native silver. The silver is in dendritic form, a slightly darkened, fairly thick and closely clustered in some areas and spread out and very frond-like in other areas. Could be etched further! A Bergakademie Freiberg label accompanies the specimen.
