Here's a real classic: lustrous silvery crystals of Skutterudite from Schneeberg, Obersachsen, Germany. This ancient mining district in the Erzgebirge Mountains (literally "ore mountains') of Germany has been mined since the 15th Century and is the type locality for many well-known mineral species. This is a fine group of lustrous crystals in good condition. A hard-to-find classic from the collection of well-known New England dealer Ernie Schlichter. Ex - E. Schlicter Collection
