ID: CC20360
This miniature of the silver antimonide Dyscrasite, forms a coral-like array of branching thick stems of a strange, slightly pinkish golden-silver.  This specimen is from the Bouismas mine in Ouarzazate Province, Morocco, which operated for only two years between 2008 and 2010, exploiting a vein rich in silver within the Bou Azzer Mining District.  The crude crystals form fronds to 1 cm wide, tapering toward their base.  A good example of this rather rare silver species.
