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.

EX87AM1: Partial novelty at the 2020 Munich Virtual show. Elongated Elbaite crystal with a scepter growth at the base and polycrystalline upper termination, between transparent and translucent, with dominant golden and bronze tones and geometric color zoning. 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.
Beni Bouzra (Bni Bouzra), Chefchaouen Province, Tanger-Tetouan-Al Hoceima Region  Morocco (04/2020)

Specimen size: 10.3 × 7.6 × 5.8 cm = 4.06” × 2.99” × 2.28”

Proustite with Silver, Acanthite and Quartz
 

EG91AM1: Very sharp, transparent, brilliant Proustite crystals with an intense and vivid color that partially cover hooked Silver wires. On matrix, with white Quartz crystals and small but very sharp octahedral crystals of Acanthite. In Imiter, it is very rare to find free-standing specimens in a vug like this one, which also has the unusual detail of the Silver wire coated with red Proustite crystals.
The specimen has been reviewed, photographed and published as a new discovery in the magazine ‘Mineral Up’ on page 43 of the 2020/02 edition.

Imiter Mine, Jebel Saghro, Imiter District, Tinghir Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (±2019)

Specimen size: 17.3 × 8.5 × 6.7 cm = 6.81” × 3.35” × 2.64”

Main crystal size: 1.2 × 1 cm = 0.47” × 0.39”
