Item Description

The Imiter Mine is perhaps the most famous Silver mine in Morocco, and has produced some of, if not the finest Silver specimens from Africa. Many people are familiar with the great wire Silvers from Imiter, and this piece is a superb miniature with excellent aesthetics and balance. It features twisting, curled, striated, three-dimenional groups of Silver wires on crystallized grey Acanthite matrix to create a very eye-catching and desirable specimen. Complete all the way around with Silver on all sides. Very fun to view up close and spin around to see the plethora on crystallization all over. These specimens seemed to have dried up on the market, and are certainly worth picking up if you collect native elements, Moroccan minerals or minerals of Africa. Priced at $1900 in the inventory.
