Imiter Mine, Boumalne-Dades, Ouarzazate Province, Souss-Massa-Draa Region, Morocco
A nearly solid cluster of lustrous and gemmy, ruby-red proustite microcrystals covers all sides of the bit of matrix on this excellent specimen from recent finds at the Imiter Mine of Morocco. This is a very fine representation of the species and locality of this sought-after silver sulfosalt. Rare in such rich specimens from this locale. Ex. Dr. Eric Asselborn Collection.
