This gallery is devoted to minerals from some of the many localities, of wordlwide fame or just recently discovered, that are plentiful in this country. Includes classic vanadinites and azurites as well as titanites, prehnites, garnets and many more.

 

WMOR-13/7 - Wulfenite and barite

Mibladen (Morocco)

A cockscomb barite matrix with a good coverage of reddish orange tabular wulfenite crystals to about 0.8 cm. on edge. Color is clearly redder than usual for Mibladen wulfenites. Quite clean of damage with only a minor crystal not complete. Old specimen.

3.6x2.4x2.3 - 40 €

 

 

WMOR-13/5 - Wulfenite and dolomite

Touissit (Morocco)

A crystallized mass of tan-colored, saddle-shape dolomite crystals serves as matrix for a number of lustrous, butter-yellow, flat square crystals of wulfenite to 1.2 cm. om edge. They are tabular crystals with the edges bevelled by bypiramids. Some nicks here and there on the wulfenite crystals that do not detract from the general quality of this specimen.

WMOR-10/24 - Vanadinite

Touissit (Morocco)

Matrixless cluster of lustrous tan colored barrel-shaped crystals of vanadinite to about 1.1 cm. long. Quite clean of damage. This kind of vanadinite was widely refered to as "endlichite" in the past and was quite common on the 80's and early 90's, being quite rare on the market nowadays.
