RM2145   Vanadinite on goethite

Taouz mine, Tadaout, Taouz, Er Rachidia, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

Curious specimens of vanadinite showing yellow, slightly orange, hexagonal prismatic crystals, on which a thin layer of goethite has been deposited. At the same time, on this layer another generation of vanadinite and calcium-rich pyromorphite (phosphohedyphane), such as the attached analyzes show, we will send to the buyer. They are disposed on a matrix of goethite. Very interesting and different specimen from this classic Moroccan mine. Take a look to the SEM image of second generation crystals with an unusually rich facet...

Size: 8.5 x 7.5 x 3.8 cm.
Main crystal: 1.2 cm.
Found in 2019.
