RM737   Silver with acanthite

Balcoll mine, Pou 2, Falset, Tarragona, Catalunya, Spain

A very rich specimen of silver from a classic locality for the Catalan mineralogy. In this sample we could enjoy several groups of very sharp brilliant skeletal silver crystals. They are accompanied by acanthite aggregates of darker color. The specimen has been acidified with care since usually silver specimens become dark, but in this case, and looking at the date of collection, we can foresee a long stability. The label indicates that this material was mined in 1905, but the specimen was collected in 1998.


Size: 5,5 x 5,5 x 4,2 cm.
Main crystal: 4 x 1 mm.
Found in 1998.
