While the famous Fresnillo Mining District in Mexico's Zacatecas State has long been known for superb examples of silver minerals, these acanthite crystals are truly something special. Their large size, complex crystal development, and sharp, jet-black faces rank them with some of the finest acanthites ever found. This outstanding large cabinet-size specimen features large, cubic to hoppered crystals associated with minor white quartz and calcite on selective faces which add a pleasing contrast. One of the largest and finest acanthites we have seen, this is an excellent specimen for the serious collector, from a small find unlikely to be rivaled any time soon. Tom Spann photo.
