EX88AK1: Octahedral crystal with the edges truncated by the faces of the cube and polycrystalline growths that give it the morphology known as "Aztec pyramid." The octahedral Fluorites are extremely rare at Panasqueira. The crystal, translucent and with an intense lilac-bluish color, has on its back remains of a matrix of crystalline Calcite and molds of missing Calcite crystals. The specimen comes from a recent find in the upper levels of Panasqueira.

ER73AK1: Very sharp and large crystals of Erythrite with fine parallel growths, bright and with a very dense and deep color. On a matrix of massive Skutterudite in which another species with salmon-pink crystals also appears and which we believe may be Talmessite. This specimen is a Moroccan classic with great quality and a very peculiar appearance.
