Argyrodite is one of the rarest and most collectible Silver Sulphosalts. It was first discovered in 1886 at Himmelsfurst and when this new mineral was analysed it led to the discovery of the element Germanium (as Argyrodite is Ag8GeS). The Argyrodite from Himmelsfurst commonly forms botyroidal crystalline masses, and this specimen presents an actually quite aesthetic form, with good crystallisation seen. A very rare and a historic specimen.
