Acanthite and Calcite
Proano Mine, Mun. de Fresnillo, Zacatecas, Mexico
Miniature, 3.6 x 1.7 x 0.9 cm

Elegant is the best way I can describe this beauty. The elongated Acanthite crystals, up to about 3 cm in height, are lustrous, sharp, and well-formed. They have a flowing beauty all their own, and are accented by small, gemmy and frosted Calcites. One of the nicest specimens I have seen from Fresnillo in quite a while. It looks good from both sides!
