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. While good acanthite and even proustite specimens from Imiter can be seen at most mineral shows, exceptional wire silver specimens have been much more scarce, with most specimens consisting of small, delicate wires on acanthite. This is a choice large, stout example, with elegant form and interesting "bristled" surface features on the solid, thick silver wire. For Moroccan (or anywhere!) silver, this is a fine, showy example. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
