TOUISSIT


The Touissit mining area is currently closed and the old shafts are flooded with water.
It is quite possible that no more quality samples from this mine will be produced in the future.

TOUNFIT FLUORITE


At the beginning of 2006 for the first time this Fluorite appeared in Morocco. It is from an old mine 1700 meters high in a mountain near the Tounfit village. First samples found were good quality but it was in Ste. Marie 2006 where we saw, and purchased, an exceptional parcel with samples of two different crystallizations and also different color and luster.
Welcome to the market, Tounfit Fluorite! We are sure that for your quality and originality you will be famous!

GE27AK0: Group of crystals with a very unusual double habit, with two growth phases very marked by the difference in color. A first one that forms a very intense and bright violet octahedral interior, only visible because the second phase, whitish in color and somewhat less bright, with the shapes of the cube and octahedron, allows the tips of the former octahedron to stand out, like small pyramids on a plane. The sample is from the Casado Margolles collection (number FRM 270) whose record we will send to the buyer.

MIBLADEN VANADINITE


A lot of locals are digging in different areas around Mibladen trying to find fine Vanadinite specimens. Curiously the prices for the nicest specimens are actually higher than the prices were in the past. The reason for this could be that, even though many people are working there, not that many really good specimens have been found. Keeping an eye on the worldwide market situation we recommend these nice Vanadinite specimens for their quality, color or unusual crystal form.

ED96AD7: A novelty at Sainte Marie-aux- Mines 2016. Characteristically platy Ilmenite crystals with irregular contour and completely pseudomorphed by Rutile, coated by very sharp Titanite crystals that are bright, with very well defined faces and edges, and with a very apparent pleochroism that shows a yellow color under led light but is greenish with natural or neon light.
The process of replacement of Ilmenite by Rutile seems very similar to that of other localities with similar geological conditions (by example the Zambian Rutile) and it is due to hydrothermal processes at the site. These samples, very different from the Titanite previously known at Imilchil, have required a hurried analytical process that well extend and complete.
