When Jordi offered me a corner on his web page to publish photos of the pieces that I choose I found it an excellent idea. It goes without saying that the project made me very enthusiastic immediately.

It is my intention to show, through my photographs, my point of view of the beauty of minerals, and I hope to add to that a point of charm, that touch of magic that minerals awaken in all those who view them with delight and admiration.

TH16AK1
Surprising is the morphological perfection of the laminar crystals, on matrix, very sharp, bright and with a very well defined hexagonal contour. The analysis, which we will send a copy of to the buyer, indicates an intimate growth of Djurleite and Chalcocite with Djurleite dominant.

The size of the laminar crystals is sensational, and they are very sharp, bright and with a very well defined hexagonal contour. With the aesthetic addition of some skeletal shapes. The analysis, which we will send a copy of to the buyer, indicates an intimate growth of Djurleite and Chalcocite with Djurleite dominant.

Curious distribution of primary Malachite crystals in small parallel groups of sharp, elongated and very intense and deep colored crystals. The primary Malachite is very rare at this locality.

TF99AK1
A rare species with many attractions including the profiled and simple shapes of the two crystals, and their blue color, and dramatized by the partial substitution by Azurite and the subsequent substitution in some areas by green Malachite. An excellent classic from Morocco.

NA37AK1
Really peculiar is this cubic Fluorite, a floater with very marked polycrystalline growths, translucent and with geometric color zoning, more intense in the nucleus of the crystal. With geometric cavities that suggest the previous existence of trigonal crystals, probably Calcite, that have subsequently dissolved. The locality is very little known and even less known for pieces of this quality.

The intensity of color and the brightness of the crystals are simply superb. They are translucent and very sharp with very well defined faces and edges and are partially coated by small crystals of white Baryte. A little gem.

A specimen that seems determined to show us at the same time all possible positions of the tabular Baryte crystals. Very sharp, partially transparent, bright, a pale blue color, on a Quartz matrix and with small Pyrite crystals. For its aesthetics it is an ideal piece for display.

Group of equidimensional crystals, attractive for their simple forms and sharp shapes, for the depth of color, brightness and the intense bright blue reflections, very typical of Kerrouchen.

An atypical Erythrite in which two generations coexist, a first generation of very sharp crystals with a very intense and vivid color, and a second generation with small elongated crystals with a much lighter color.
The sample is from the Ral Sanabria collection whose label we will send to the buyer.

TD29AK1
The Anglesite is surely one of the species, along with the Azurite and the Cerussite, that has given most fame to the Touissit Mine. In this case it is a specimen with very sharp crystals, one of them clearly dominant, with considerable length, doubly terminated, translucent, bright with a light yellow color and on matrix.

EB11AK1
An extraordinary specimen that brings together various morphological habits of Cerussite, with very sharp arrow twins, parallel growths of elongated crystals and lattice growths. The crystals are translucent and very bright.
A superb example from the Ren Hubin collection whose label we will send to the buyer.

AB16AK1
The best possible color for the Vanadinite! The crystals on a white Baryte matrix have very sharp faces and edges, some very marked hopper growths and they are translucent and extraordinarily bright. A specimen that can compete wonderfully with the best quality of the latest finds of Vanadinite in Morocco and that comes from the collection of Josep Amig (Silvane) whose label we will send to the buyer.
