RM804   Erythrite with skutterudite

Bou Azzer, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate, Souss-Massa-Draâ, Morocco

In this specimen we have a very curious combination of erythrite forms. On the one hand, globular aggregates of this arsenate formed by needle like crystals with a velvet luster and a pale pink color. On the other hand, groups of lanceolated crystals with defined faces and edges, good transparence and deep purple color. All of them are disposed on a matrix with sharp cube octahedron skutterudite crystals. A fine specimen for this Moroccan locality.

Size: 6,0 x 4,3 x 3,2 cm.
Main crystal: 13 x 5 mm.
