ET27AK6: Doubly terminated Quartz crystal, between translucent and transparent, very lustrous, with inclusions and on a matrix of sharp rhombohedral crystals of Siderite. Although it was found in the Taouz area, it is not from the group of mines at that locality but rather appeared on a nearby mountain that has no relation to the mining complex.

Zunyite with Hematite
 

MV87AK6: Zunyite crystal, a rare aluminum fluoride and sorosilicate, on matrix. The crystal, tetrahedral and bevelled by cube faces, has very defined and smooth reddish-brown faces, with dark lamellar inclusions of Hematite, which makes it different from the first Zunyites from Iran that came to the world of collecting in Munich 2018.
