RM3011   Wulfenite and baryte

Mine des Dalles, Mibladen, Khénifra, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

Wulfenite specimens like the one we present are very unusual for this locality and appeared many years ago. On a matrix with dolomite, galena and baryte there are numerous crystals of intense orange color, with dipyramid faces truncated by the pinacoids. Some appear as isolated crystals and mostly in parallel growth. This specimen is from the Peter Seroka collection and previously belonged to the Marcus Lueg collection.


Size: 7.9 x 7.2 x 4.8 cm.
Main crystal: 1.1 cm.
Found in ±2008.

RM2773   Baryte

Jbel Aouam, El Hammam Caïdat, Aguelmous Cercle, Khénifra, Béni Mellal-Khénifra, Morocco

These baryte crystals are very different from the usual ones that we can see coming from this Moroccan locality and even from other deposits famous for baryte. These are prisms of different orders, the predominant third order, truncated by the second order. We observe that a white geometric growth has formed and only affects certain faces of the rhombic prisms. This zoning is unusual for the species. The crystals are transparent and brilliant.
