An unusual specimen from this Moroccan mining area. Globular aggregates of crystaline conichalcite  with its classic green color, partially covering cavities of the matrix. To give a unique touch of quality to this sample, cavities are covered with bright, water-clear calcite crystals, many of them doubly terminated, and including or covering the conichalcite species. An excellent and brilliant specimen.

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.
