TA89AE7: A novelty at Tucson 2017. Djurleite-Chalcocite (intergrowth) mined carefully over 7 months in the Aït Ahmane area (it seems that not in the same shafts that produced the famous Gersdorffites) and presented for the first time in Tucson 2017.
We believe that for the sharpness of the crystals and their size this find will highlight Aït Ahmane as one of the world's best localities for this not so common species.
We will send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.

Olivenite and Azurite

EW11AD8: A novelty at Sainte Marie-aux- Mines 2016. Aggregates of acicular Olivenite crystals, individualized or forming radial aggregates, with the olive-green color typical for the species, on limonite matrix and with rosette aggregates of lenticular Azurite crystals with a vivid and deep color. The Olivenite has been analyzed and we’ll send a copy of the analysis to the buyer. As usual with the Moroccan novelties, the locality is not yet completely confirmed, but it is very plausible that it is Tazalarht.

Azurite

TA46N0: A novelty for Tucson 2009. From a new Moroccan locality, not yet well determined. Azurite forms groups of small crystals, almost globular, on a Quartz matrix and taller crystals, flattened, with parallel groups and multiple terminations. On the lower part, these crystals are partially coated by a material that, analyzed, , is a melange of clay, chalky powder and some kind of submicrocrystalline copper phosphate.

Azurite


Oumjrane

Azurite with Malachite and Baryte

ED99AE6: An aggregate of very sharp flattened crystals that are very bright with a vivid color that extraordinarily resembles the Milpillas “electric blue.” With the Azurite there are small white Barite crystals and Malachite clusters.
