RM1665   Nepheline and schorlomite

Jebel Bou-Agrao, Tamazeght Mts., Khénifra, Béni Mellal-Khénifra, Morocco

A vug that is lined with sharp, hexagonal, grayish-white nepheline crystals, accompanied by lustrous, black crystals of schorlomite as dodecahedral crystals. Schorlomite is a rare garnet group member and much of the material labeled "schorlomite" is, strictly speaking, titanian andradite. Excellent, highly representative combination material of the species. Not very often one can see well formed nepheline crystals of this species, especially crystals this size. Very aesthetic specimen from Jebel Bou-Agrao.

Size: 6.7 x 4.6 x 4.0 cm.
Main crystal: 20 x 12 mm.
