Ullmannite (As-bearing) with Calcite
 

EL27AM1: A novelty at the 2020 Munich Virtual show. Matrix group of Ullmannite crystals of cubic habit, with well defined faces and edges, of considerably large size for the species and with small interstitial coatings of nickel salts. As is inevitable with this type of crystals included in the interior of a Calcite matrix, it has been partially acid-etched. The specimen, which comes from a new Moroccan locality for which at the moment we only know the region, has been analyzed and we will send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.

Elbaite (variety rubellite) with Quartz and Feldspar
 

EX69AM1: Elbaite crystal with sharp faces and edges and a flat pinacoid termination, between transparent and translucent, lustrous, with a dominant intense pink color and yellow tones in the heart of the crystal. On matrix, with Feldspar and Quartz crystals. The locality name differs from what has been given so far for similar specimens, and we do not know whether there are in fact two different localities or not.
Demnate area, Azilal Province, Béni Mellal-Khénifra Region  Morocco (04/2020)

Specimen size: 4.8 × 3.3 × 2.8 cm = 1.89” × 1.30” × 1.10”
