Unusual and good old specimen from this classic and closed mine. The piece hosts a burst of quartz crystals that is partly covered and associated with with hollow pseudomorphs (perimorphs) of quartz after calcite. The shape of the replaced calcites is nicely preserved. The dark gray color is probably due to inclusions of boulangerite.
