This is an unusual one. A wide opening lined with small calcite crystals is studded with almost spherical "argentite" crystals. The crystals show no crystal forms, at all! The matrix is coarsely crystallized sphalerite and pyrite. The Eldorado mine was a silver and uranium mine, although this specimen is not radioactive. .
