Item #7086
$ 4,000
Cata Mine, Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico

This is the finest thumbnail acanthite I have ever seen. It is supremely aesthetic and the crystals are remarkably lustrous, sharp and well formed. Most acanthites have somewhat rounded edges and very skeletal crystal formation. These crystals are very sharp and, while they exhibit acanthites somewhat skeletal growth, are much more perfect cubes than just about any this size I have seen before. And the cubes are large, measuring 1.1 cm on edge. Simply the best: 2 x 2 x 2.2 cm.
