RM2603   Silver

Aït Ahmane (filon 53), Agdz Cercle, Zagora, Drâa-Tafilalet, Morocco

This specimen stands out for showing arborescent growths of very well defined silver cubic crystals. In addition, the piece comes from a Moroccan mine from which few samples of this type and quality have been collected. To add more importance to the piece, it must be said that the calcite has been partially removed by mechanical procedures, without acids that could cause the silver to blacken. Well defined, extremely brilliant and isolated silver crystals are not very common, usually appear deformed or in complex growths. An excellent and good sized specimen.

RM2284   Vanadinite on matrix

Coud'a 24m↓, Mibladen, Midelt, Drâa-Tafilalet, Morocco

On a recent trip to this mining area, we found these new specimens with incredible aesthetics. They were found in a singular cavity, opened in the depths of a 24-meter well, in Coud'a shafts. They have a more than exceptional brilliance, probably due to a last phase of crystallization in which a thin layer of almost transparent vanadinite was deposited. Crystals are very well defined, with staggered axial growths in the prism and with color zoning, more orange than red. Contrasting on a solid rocky matrix. Vanadinites from the Mibladen area are well known worldwide and although we have seen many of them, they never cease to amaze us. Amazing specimens!

They were found in a singular cavity, opened in the depths of a 24-meter well, in the Coud'a shafts area. They have a really good brilliance. Crystals show attractive stalactitic growths, also uneven developments in the directions of the prism, very well defined, interpenetrated and with some color zoning. Vanadinite specimens from Mibladen area are well known iworlwide and although we have seen many, they never cease to amaze us. Exceptional specimens.
