Acanthite
San Juan de Rayas Mine - Level 407
Guanajuato, Mexico
2.2 x 1.3 x .6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $140


Branching crystals of Acanthite forming a tree-like thumbnail with very bright metallic luster. Complete all around, undamaged and pretty. A very good yet still affordable Silver specie from the famed Guanajuato deposit. This area has been continuously mined for Silver since the discovery in 1585, and this was the world's largest producer for many years. Amazingly there are still a few operating mines and Silver minerals are still found though far less than before.
