Kongsbergite (Mercury rich Silver).
NA68E1: Kongsbergite (Mercury rich Silver)
In the classic mine of Las Herrerias recent activity has exposed an enriched zone where Silver was then found. These are similar to the samples found years ago, which are present in many of the most important museums worldwide. The latest specimens have a high (±10%) content of Mercury and some of them are on a matrix of red Jasper. Analysis has shown that they have a large amount of Chlorargyrite throughout the specimen. As is normal we will send the person that buys this one a copy of the analysis. This one is one of the best that they found, and it is very solid. So overall an outstanding specimen from the find.

MA77AF2: Silver
Dendritic growth of extraordinarily elongated crystals with the very visible spinel law twins and black Acanthite surfaces. Its excellent condition of preservation in spite of the long time since it was mined (the sample is from a collection of the 80s-90s) suggests it has no embedded or interstitial mercury. It is not, then, the variety kongsbergite, the more typical Silver at this locality.

Floater aggregate with polycrystalline growths of hexahedral Silver crystals with very well defined faces and edges, shiny and with small dark coatings of Acanthite. Although the area is known for its Fluorites, specimens from this particular mine are rare and good Silvers even more so.

A plate from a fissure of microcrystals with skeletal forms, on matrix. The piece is from an old find in Imiter, probably around de decade of the 90’ts and unusual as the habitual it has a crystalline aspect.
Imiter Mine, Jebel Saghro, Imiter District, Tinghir Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (±1990)
Specimen size: 4.2 × 4 × 4.6 cm = 1.65” × 1.57” × 1.81”

Price: [SOLD]
Silver.
TP49X2: Silver
Fissure plate of micro-crystals on matrix. The sample is from an old find at Imiter, probably around the 1990'ts. Its luster and fresh aspect suggest that it has no mercury and it is native Silver and not the variety kongsbergite, very common at this locality.
Imiter Mine, Jebel Saghro, Imiter District, Tinghir Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (±1990)

Price: €490 / US$577 / JPY60940 / AUD$800
Silver.
TN46W5: Silver
Laminar growths of native Silver on matrix. This sample, a magnificent Moroccan classic, is preserved in mint condition in spite of the many years since its extraction, due to it’s not being combined with native Mercury (Kongsbergite), unlike what happens with the majority of the samples from Imiter.
Imiter Mine, Jebel Saghro, Imiter District, Tinghir Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (±1990)
Specimen size: 14.5 × 10 × 5.3 cm = 5.71” × 3.94” × 2.09”

Price: [SOLD]
Silver.

Specimen size: 4 × 4 × 2.8 cm = 1.57” × 1.57” × 1.10”

Price: [SOLD]
Silver.
EX67I1: Silver
A great classic. The specimen is splendid, very esthetic and on matrix, with elongated crystals having acute terminations and well-defined faces (a rare feature with Silver specimens), and arborescent growths. Some very small green Sphalerite crystals appear on the tops of some of the Silver crystals.
Kongsberg mining District, Kongsberg, Buskerud  Norway
Specimen size: 6.9 × 5.5 × 1.3 cm = 2.72” × 2.17” × 0.51”

Main crystal size: 2 × 0.2 cm = 0.79” × 0.08”

Price: [SOLD]
Silver.
NF59H1: Silver
The growth is laminar which is uncommon in the samples from Falset. Another aspect to distinguish the specimen is that it hasn’t been etched out with acid because the Silver is found in fissures and is not included in Calcite.
Balcoll Mine, Shaft 2, Falset, Comarca Priorat, Tarragona, Catalonia  Spain (10/2004)
Specimen size: 2.5 × 2.2 × 1 cm = 0.98” × 0.87” × 0.39”

Price: [SOLD]
Silver.
TB14J3: Silver
Hooked and skeletal growths on matrix. We note that from this locality, and very similar in their aspect, there are samples named as Allargentum (Ag7Sb). We analyzed the specimen and, in this case, it is simply native Silver.
Shaft 371, 1410 level, Schlema-Hartenstein District, Erzgebirgskreis, Saxony/Sachsen  Germany
Specimen size: 4.7 × 3.2 × 1.8 cm = 1.85” × 1.26” × 0.71”

Price: [SOLD]
Silver.
AC16P4: Silver
Arborescent growth, very esthetic, of thin, elongated crystals with well defined faces and edges. We also note the locality, an American classic for Silver.
