RM2773   Baryte

Jbel Aouam, El Hammam Caïdat, Aguelmous Cercle, Khénifra, Béni Mellal-Khénifra, Morocco

These baryte crystals are very different from the usual ones that we can see coming from this Moroccan locality and even from other deposits famous for baryte. These are prisms of different orders, the predominant third order, truncated by the second order. We observe that a white geometric growth has formed and only affects certain faces of the rhombic prisms. This zoning is unusual for the species. The crystals are transparent and brilliant.


Size: 6 x 3.1 x 0.6 cm.

RM2795   Betafite (of Hogarth 1977), variety of Pyrochlore

Ambatoasana, Soavinandriana, Itasy, Antananarivo, Madagascar

A huge size crystal of betafite showing defined octahedral faces (triangular) and developed dodecahedral ones. Very interesting for its crystallography and species. An oldie, classic and representative for the species.
Although the term betafite was discredited in 2010, many of us still are using this term to define this mineral when we see it. Our specimen is an uranium, calcium, titanium and niobium/tantalum oxide with radioactive activity. Currently the betafite is included as a variety within the pyrochlore supergroup. As a note, the rich uranium term has been only found in the Moon (oxyuranobetafite).
