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.
