A pair of large acanthite crystals (pseudomorphs afte argentite) in parallel growth, the largest measuring 2.9 cm across (!). The piece is a floater with no point of attacment, and is fully crystallized, with the front being well defined, while the back and one side are less so. This is a lot of acanthite – it has some heft! With magnification, minor silver wires are visible in the gap between the two crystals and in another hollow – these appear to be at least partially pseudomorphed by acanthite. In excellent condition – a couple of small rubs on the piece but the tips and edges are well defined without chips or nicks. Great acanthite – due to its size, the overall shape stands out nicely in the cabinet.
