RM3011   Wulfenite and baryte

Mine des Dalles, Mibladen, Khénifra, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

Wulfenite specimens like the one we present are very unusual for this locality and appeared many years ago. On a matrix with dolomite, galena and baryte there are numerous crystals of intense orange color, with dipyramid faces truncated by the pinacoids. Some appear as isolated crystals and mostly in parallel growth. This specimen is from the Peter Seroka collection and previously belonged to the Marcus Lueg collection.

Size: 7.9 x 7.2 x 4.8 cm.
Main crystal: 1.1 cm.
Found in ±2008.
