RM3133   Anglesite and Galena

Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker, Jerada, Oriental Region, Morocco

Anglesite specimens from this classic Moroccan mine are quite difficult to find. In this piece we can see numerous lanceolated prismatic crystals of this lead sulphate, very brilliant, with well defined faces and edges, transparent and showing the natural yellow colour characteristic of this species and mine. They are disposed filling cavities in a galena matrix.


Size: 6.6 x 6.5 x 6 cm.
Main crystal: 10 mm.

RM3161   Vanadinite, var. Endlichite, and descloizite-Mottramite

Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker, Jerada, Oriental Region, Morocco

Very aesthetic specimen formed by several aggregates of vanadinite crystals, labeled as arsenical endlichite. Very well defined hexagonal prisms, beige in color, peppered with tiny but brilliant and well defined crystals of descloizite-mottramite, with dark honey tones. The descloizite-mottramite forms globules but also partially covers vanadinite crystals, especially on the pinacoidal faces and forming "half moons", a curiosity. These specimens from this Moroccan mine are not common.
