RM1696   Wendwilsonite with aragonite

Aghbar Mine, Aghbar, Bou Azzer, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate, Morocco

Aesthetic specimen of wendwilsonite formed by numerous sized and isolated crystals, transparent, very well defined, some of them doubly terminated. With an intense and uniform pink color. They are disposed on a matrix with brilliant calcite crystals and dolomite. The sample has been analyzed and we will send all results to the buyer. The sample has been analyzed by SEM-EDS and Raman. The results indicate a very low Co content and the Raman indicates that it is wendwilsonite. We will send the buyer all the details.

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.

Main crystal: 20 x 12 mm.

 

RM1666   Gold, var. electrum and Erythrite

Taghouni mine, Taghouni, Bou Azer, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate, Morocco

These specimens show a matrix formed by arsenates such as erythrite and associated sulphides and arsenates of cobalt and iron. We can observe on both the presence of arborescent, filiform and laminar gold aggregates. SEM analysis has shown that this is a variety of gold rich in silver (23-24%w): electrum.
Under loupe, we can enjoy that some of these gold aggregates are formed by small crystals of octahedral to cubic forms. We can theorize a secondary genesis for this gold-electrum. We have analyzed the matrix of these specimens observing that the bright metallic matrix corresponds to a mixture of cobalt arsenides, probably skutterudite, and other sulphides. We will send all analyzes to the buyer. The gold and electrum in Bou Azer was already described, but the quality of these specimens we offer surpasses what was known. A very rich gold-electrum specimen.

RM1598   Gold, var. electrum and Erythrite

Taghouni mine, Taghouni, Bou Azer, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate, Morocco

A novelty in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines (2017). Matrix formed by sulphides, arsenites and arsenates of Co like erythrite, with some crystals, accompanied by several wire to laminar gold aggregates. SEM analysis shows that it is a rich silver gold, variety electrum, unusual. Silver content is similar in all specimens we have analyzed and varies between 20-24% weight.
Under loupe, we can enjoy that some of these gold aggregates are formed by small crystals of octahedral to cubic forms. We can theorize a secondary genesis for this gold-electrum. We have analyzed the matrix of these specimens observing that the bright metallic matrix corresponds to a mixture of cobalt arsenides, probably skutterudite, and other sulphides. We will send all analyzes to the buyer. The gold and electrum in Bou Azer was already described, but the quality of these specimens we offer surpasses what was known.
