Jordi Fabre's Photo Gallery

H2V-JG3Acanthite : Ag2S, Quartz : SiO2, Pyrite : FeS2

Multiple photos available
San Juan de Rayas Mine, Guanajuato, Mun. de Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico

Dimensions: 6.5 cm x 3.2 cm x 3.5 cm
Largest Crystal Size: 2.2 cm

Acanthite crystals with the dominant forms of the cube some of whose faces have very deep hollowed growths. One of the more dominant and very aerial crystals is extraordinarily elongated. They are on matrix with Quartz and small and very bright Pyrite crystals.
The sample, a great classic, is from the David and Emily Stoudt collection of Houston, Texas, and previously in the Kenneth C. Raba and Arson collections in New York.

Dimensions: 10.3 cm x 9.7 cm x 7.2 cm
Largest Crystal Size: 9.4 cm

A pair of doubly terminated crystals with very well balanced pyramid and prism faces, with hydrocarbon inclusions and small Fluorite crystals that have a very intense lilac color. The sample has been perfectly preserved, the crystals have a very good size and it leaves nothing to envy with those from further finds.
