ASSA-ZAG PROVINCE

Gold from Guelmim-Oued Noun

During the year 2020, images, videos and many rumors began to circulate about the discovery of high-quality Golds in the Southwest of Morocco. With the Covid situation it was difficult to go to or to leave Morocco, so it was quite a long time until the first pieces arrived in Europe. Once here, very reliable analyses had to be done to ensure that these new Golds were natural. They were so perfect and, some of them so different from the Golds that had been known before from Southwestern Morocco that to avoid suspicions it was best to have the analytical data prior to putting them on sale. Between one thing and another we have had to wait a bit but at the end of 2020 we can finally offer these specimens of great beauty and very different from what has been known so far.
We attach here the analysis, which as you can see is very complete, to avoid doubts about it.

Titanite on Rutile after Ilmenite and with Microcline
 

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 we’ll extend and complete. We’ll send to the buyer the information and documentation previously obtained about the process and also a copy of the analyses done on the different species present in these samples.

EK48AE1: A novelty at Sainte Marie-aux-Mines 2016. Platy Ilmenite crystals with irregular contours 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 daylight or neon light. Partially coated by Microcline crystals.
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. We’ll send to the buyer a copy of the analyses done on the different species present in the samples.

EF90AG9: A novelty at Sainte Marie-aux- Mines 2016. Platy Ilmenite crystals with irregular pseudo-hexagonal contour and completely pseudomorphed by Rutile, coated by very sharp Titanite crystals that are bright, with very well defined faces and edges and coated in the back by Microcline crystals. The Titanite crystals have 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 an accurate analytical process. We’ll send to the buyer a copy of the analyses done on the different species present in these samples.

Fluorapatite on Prehnite
 

MV29AG3: A novelty at Munich 2017. Elongated Fluorapatite crystal, translucent with a very bright upper pinacoid and the lower part recrystallized. The crystal has an unusual genesis, being in a micro-crystalline Prehnite nodule. Another aspect to note, it closely remains a Tourmaline because it is polychromic, mainly pink and with a green termination.
This specimen was photographed for the ‘Munich 2017’ section of the magazine ‘Mineralien Welt’ and appears on page 71 of number 1/2018, and for the magazine ‘Mineralogical Record’ on page 335 in the volume 49, number 2

Coud'a Vanadinite

One of the exciting novelties at Tucson 2002 was the new find of Vanadinite from a new shaft in the Mibladen area. The name of this shaft is "Coud'a". Hard to translate from Arabian to English, it is pronounced "Coudia". In this new shaft people found some very large Vanadinite crystals. This in its self is not a real novelty because recently all sorts of crystal sizes have been found. The novelty is that their form is much more complex than the other Vanadinites and also their luster and color much better than usual. The crystals are near to being floaters with just a small point on each crystal where they were attached to the matrix. As a result of their size and very limited attachment no matrix specimens are available - they are too big and too heavy to resist any kind of extraction.

When Vanadinite crystals are huge they are usually either dull, poorly color or have four or five figures price. These ones look great and the balance quality / price is extremely affordable in our opinion. We tried to get the most competitive specimens, especially given all the possible concerns that you might have about this kind of material, as the area is being thoroughly searched so anything could happen for good or bad.

Well, this is our offer of these lovely specimens that I really like a lot! You will observe that some specimens are photographed twice - from its front and from its rear or corner so as to show its complex crystallography.

TRL57AN3: Matrix groups of two very different generations of Picropharmacolite. The first is made up of groups of microcrystals that form spheres that owe their intense red color to the presence of cobalt salts, and the second are centered groups of acicular crystals with a very pale pink color, almost white.
This specimen, from a 2021 find in the Bou Azzer area, has been analyzed and we will send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.

TVC57AO3: Groups, on matrix, in which two generations of Picropharmacolite with very different morphologies coexist: the first as groups of spheroidal microcrystals with an intense and vivid red color due to cobalt ions; while the second forms centered groups of acicular crystals of a very pale pink color, almost white. The specimen, from a 2021 find in the Bou Azzer area, has been analyzed and we will send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.
The specimen has been photographed and published in the magazine ‘Paragénesis’, number 02/2021, page 101
