The Imiter silver mine, located in Morocco's Ouarzazate Province, has produced some world-class examples of acanthite, proustite, and wire silver in the past ~20 years. The best Imiter acanthites rival classic historical finds from Mexico or Germany, and feature predominantly octahedral crystals, as opposed to the more common cubic or cubic-modified forms. This is a choice large example, featuring sharp, large acanthite crystals perched aesthetically on massive acanthite matrix. For Moroccan (or anywhere) acanthite, this is a fine, showy example. Ex.
