RM2477   Smithsonite

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

Hemispherical aggregate of smithsonite crystals, of good size, luster and with a very curious orange-brown color. On the label of the A. Trigo (Mataró) collection it indicates that he bought this specimen from a Moroccan dealer (1989) as "tornuisite", a term for which we have not found references, unless it was wrongly confused with "tarnowizite". Touissit specimens of globular smithsonite are known but rare.

Size: 5.6 x 4.5 x 3 cm.
Found in ca. 1989.

Col. Antonio Trigo (Mataró).
