Acanthite on Dolomite
Valenciana Mine, Guanajuato, GTO, Mexico

It is surprising difficult to get matrix silver specimens from Mexico. It is even harder to get them on nice white dolomite. This piece measures 2.8 x 2.1 x 1.5. About a half dozen acanthites, to 0.8 cm on an edge, are scattered across a field of dolomites. Despite the fact I have been to Mexico over 60 times to buy minerals, I still get excited any time I find a specimen as nice as this one.
