While the famous Fresnillo Mining District in Mexico's Zacatecas State has long been known for superb examples of various 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 specimen features very large, cubic to hoppered crystals associated with minor white quartz and calcite which is aesthetically sprinkled across selective faces. This is a very choice acanthite specimen for the serious collector, from a small find unlikely to be rivaled any time soon. Tom Spann photo.
