Sold12.8cm x 7cm x 3.8cm
Acanthite from Morocco has been one of the great new finds in the last decade with hundreds of specimens coming on the market since the mid 2000s. This specimen has the nicest form we have seen, with an aesthetic arrangement of clusters of intergrown octahedral crystals around the edges of the matrix. The crystals are sharply formed, and the largest measures to 2.3cm. It almost has a festive star on a christmas tree apearance!
