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. The sample is from an indeterminate place in the Oumjrane area, possibly from one of the old works of this zone. These crystals have a luster and color that is superior to the previously known azurites from Morocco.

Quartz (variety prase)

EA72AE6: Very well defined spear-shaped crystals that are dipyramidal, with absent prismatic faces. They are bright with an intense green color due to inclusions, probably Actinolite and/or Hedenbergite. On the sample there is Quartz with a very different shape, probably a first growth phase, a coating or a substitution of Calcite crystals which have disappeared. The Quartz has formed parallel polycrystalline growths with flattened, almost laminar forms filling and following the empty spaces left by the earlier Calcite.

Cobaltoan Calcite
Cobaltoan Calcite

RB27AE6: Banded growths of cobaltoan Calcite with a very intense color alternating with fine bands of white and yellowish Calcite. The sample, in spite its fine surface, hasn't been acid-etched, as its rough surfaces in most areas and the existence of easily altered carbonates proves.
