Morocco, Imiter Mine, Acanthite ps Argentite

Very few modern localities have produced "argentite" crystals like the Imiter Mine. Of course these crystals are really acanthite pseudomorphs after the higher tempurature silver sulphide polymorph argentite. Excellent examples!

  • This is different one. Look at the elongated acanthite ps argentite crystals in this one?! When I first saw them, I thought they were imiterite. They are not the right shape, however and are totally flexible. They are square in cross section and have cube-octahedral terminations. Very cool and unusual! They are all attached to regular, octahedral acanthite ps argentite crystals. Great proustite, as well!!
