RM1139   Pyromorphite with goethite

Bou Iboulkhir mine, Moulay Bouazza, Khénifra, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

Groups of pyromorphite crystals (analyzed), some individualized, which are disposed, with a very aesthetic contrast, on a matrix of goethite. The yellowish green color is very intense, exceptional brilliance, translucent to transparent. They show defined hexagonal prisms truncated by the pinacoid, some of them insinuate the hexagonal dipyramid faces. Under magnifying glass transparency we can be seen perfectly.

They come from a Moroccan locality that once was known by the presence of pyromorphite, but not with this quality and less represented in collections. Few specimens have been presented at Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines 2015.
