Imiter Mine, Imiter District, DjebelSaghro, Ouarzazate Province
Souss Massa Draa Region, Morocco
3 x 2.9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
A very bright and very red crystallized ruby silver specimen from the great Imiter Mine in Morocco. This looks great on all sides and is a really attractive example of this "noble" mineral. Always uncommon especially in this quality, there may not be any more since the mine owners now strictly prohibit any collecting with some miners getting long jail terms.
