RM1484   Calcite and quartz with goethite inclusions

Tizi-n-Tichka, Ouarzazate, Drâa-Tafilalet, Morocco

Very curious aggregate of calcite crystals, forming a rosette, which are disposed very aesthetically on a matrix of quartz crystals. We can observe numerous acicular aggregates of goethite included in the quartz and even coming out of it and penetrating the calcite. An unusual Moroccan piece as is its locality. From the Gustav Beck collection.

Size: 4.8 x 3.0 x 3.0 cm.
