HOLD Kongsberite w. Acanthite
stock #HOLD 7 MOR-226
Zgounder Mine
Anti-Atlas Mts., Morocco
9.8 x 6 CM (cabinet)
price: $400


A large, heavy mass that's nearly all Silver minerals, this is a rich specimen covered with the ropy wires and radiating arrays of Kongsbergite and dull black Acanthite showing a few crystals but mostly in masses. Kongsbergite is a Mercury-rich Silver (only about 5% the rest is silver) it is relatively uncommon, and some of the wires here may be pure silver as well. There are only a few tiny bits of Quartz to be found on this otherwise it is an all silver specimen.
