This specimen is a vuggy dolomite vein section containing cleavages of galena. Within the crystalline dolomite vugs are scattered needles of imiterite to 2.5 mm. Minute red crystals of cinnabar in the vugs provide a bit of color contrast. Guillou et al. (1985) named the mineral after Imiter, the type locality. Imiterite is rather rare at Imiter; many labeled specimens from recent finds (2007-2008) are actually darkened proustite. This piece comes from the Charles Leavitt (1919–2004) collection.
