Imiter Mine, Boumalne-Dades, Ouarzazate Province, Souss-Massa-Draa Region, Morocco
Miniature, 4.0 x 2.6 x 2.4 cm
An SUPERB and very AESTHETIC miniature of octohedral acanthite crystals from the recent find at the Imiter Mine in the Anti-Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The piece is crowned by two medium-luster, etched, overgrown, octohedral acanthite crystals to 2.0 cm. Seasoned European collectors liken these pieces to classic Freiberg acanthite, which were never common. Many collectors and dealers expect these to become an instant classic. 4.0 x 2.6 x 2.4 cm
