Gold (variety electrum) with Erythrite

EX13AF9: Very elongated crystals of native Gold in hooked growths. They are on matrix with radial and felted aggregates of acicular Erythrite crystals. These native Golds from Bou Azzer were noted a long time ago so this recent rediscovery must be considered as a novelty, at the same time a curiosity and a rarity in collections. The analysis shows a high average of Silver (about 25 %) and about 1 % of Arsenic. We’ll send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.

Roweite with Olshanskyite, Wurtzite y Andradite

EH57AF9: Aggregates of platy Roweite crystals of great size and quality for what has been known of this species. They are on matrix, with radial aggregates of colorless, clear and very bright Olshanskyite crystals, black dipyramidal Wurtzite crystals and small Andradite crystals. The Roweite crystals, that are well differentiated, have a light creamy color with very well defined faces and edges. The quality of the specimens is undoubtedly superior to what was previously known, both for the individuality of the crystals and for their sharpness, but also for the size of the crystals and their association with first class Olshanskyite which makes them deserving to be in the best private collections and museums. We have analyzed specimens to confirm the identity of the species and we will send a copy of the different species to buyers.
