Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite).
FG53C1: Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite)
Open group of Tarnowitzite (Lead rich Aragonite variety) from Touissit. As is the case most of the time with Oliete's specimens the esthetics are excellent.
Shaft IX (Puit IX), Touissit, Touissit District, Jerada Province, Oriental Region  Morocco
Specimen size: 9 × 8.8 × 6.2 cm = 3.5” × 3.5” × 2.4”

Price: [SOLD]
Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite).
N8PH5: Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite)
Its prismatic crystals have a perfect crystallization, but we call attention on its degree of transparency, very uncommon, on this plumbian variety of Aragonite. It’s also interesting to enhance the contrast with Limonite matrix with little acicular crystals of Malachite. We’ll send a copy of the analysis with the sample.
Shaft IX (Puit IX), Touissit, Touissit District, Jerada Province, Oriental Region  Morocco (1998)
Specimen size: 2.9 × 3.1 × 2.4 cm = 1.1” × 1.2” × 0.9”

Main crystal size: 2 × 0.9 cm = 0.8” × 0.4”

Price: [SOLD]
Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite).
AD11M6: Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite)
Group of twinned crystals of this rare plumbian variety of Aragonite. They are very well defined and have neat color zonating. They are white on the top and practically uncolored on the prism. They are on a matrix with small crystals of Dolomite.
Touissit, Touissit District, Jerada Province, Oriental Region  Morocco
Specimen size: 4.2 × 3.4 × 2.5 cm = 1.7” × 1.3” × 1.0”

Price: [SOLD]
Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite) on Calcite.
MF78I0: Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite) on Calcite
The crystal is a typical pseudohexagonal twin and it is formed by a short prism and the pseudopyramidal termination. It is esthetically grown on a matrix covered by concretions of Calcite contrasting with white Tarnowitzite, a lead-rich variety, not very common, of Aragonite.
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region  Namibia
Specimen size: 4.5 × 4.5 × 3.8 cm = 1.8” × 1.8” × 1.5”

Main crystal size: 2.5 × 2.3 cm = 1.0” × 0.9”

Price: [SOLD]
Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite) with Smithsonite.
MF39AF0: Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite) with Smithsonite
Very elongated prismatic crystals, a lot of them doubly terminated. They have very well defined faces and edges, with a white color and are on matrix with small Smithsonite crystals. A classic of the most glorious Touissit epoch.
Touissit, Touissit District, Jerada Province, Oriental Region  Morocco
Specimen size: 9.9 × 5.3 × 3 cm = 3.9” × 2.1” × 1.2”

Price: [SOLD]
Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite) with Smithsonite.
GP67R0: Aragonite (variety tarnowitzite) with Smithsonite
Group of cream-colored twinned crystals of this lead-bearing variety of Aragonite (6-7 % PbO in the samples from Morocco). They have very well defined faces and edges and are on a matrix with small crystals of Smithsonite. Such samples, found around 1988, are actually very scarce.
Touissit, Touissit District, Jerada Province, Oriental Region  Morocco (±1988)
Specimen size: 9 × 7.4 × 4.4 cm = 3.5” × 2.9” × 1.7”

Main crystal size: 1.7 × 0.5 cm = 0.7” × 0.2”

Price: [SOLD]
