David K. Joyce Minerals

Morocco, Silver, Bouismas Mine, Bouismas, Bou Azer District, Ouarzazate Province

I have listed these specimens under "Silver" as opposed to dyscrasite or allargentum, as other sources have classified them. The silvery, metallic mineral has silver crystal structure/habit in these specimens and I have had them analysed as silver with a couple of percent of mercury. The calcite has been partially etched away to reveal the dendrites. They are GREAT specimens of SILVER!

  • Loads of silver protrudes from this calcite matrix on all sides. Actually, the calcite is more grey than usual because of the silver content. More of the calcite can be etched off to reveal many more beautiful crystals of dendritic silver. I use vinegar! Rich!
