RM2271   Sphalerite, chalcopyrite and dolomite

Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker, Jerada, Oriental Region, Morocco

Some unusual specimens from the Oujda area, specifically from Touissit. These are aggregates of sphalerite crystals, some of them twinned, of an intense brown color, with reddish transparencies, good luster, which are dotted with small chalcopyrite and pyrite crystals, disposed on a dolomite matrix, with an aesthetic contrast. Just arrived (March 2020) after our trip through Moroccan lands.

Size: 5.6 x 5.5 x 3.2 cm.
Main crystal: 1.1 cm.
