Baryte with Calcite, Dolomite and Fluorite
 

JFD217AP7: 'Something different' is what drives us.
The yellow barytes are “something quite different” from a mine as well known as the Moscona Mine. The Calcite and the Fluorite add the signature touches, but that yellow Baryte is what makes the difference.
Moscona Mine, El Llano, Solís, Corvera de Asturias, Comarca Avilés, Principality of Asturias (Asturias)  Spain (1998)

Specimen size: 5.8 × 4.8 × 4.8 cm = 2.28” × 1.89” × 1.89”

Acanthite with Siderite
 

JFD218AP7: Well balanced, harmonious, and with elongated Siderite crystals to provide some contrast.
This Acanthite has several virtues, being, unlike many others from Imiter, lustrous and not rough surfaced at all.
Imiter Mine, Jebel Saghro, Imiter District, Tinghir Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (09/2005)

Specimen size: 2.4 × 1.9 × 1.3 cm = 0.94” × 0.75” × 0.51”

JFD219AP7: Their color and sharpness characterize Touissit azurites, as well as their reddish to orange Dolomite matrix.
This crystal, very isolated, combines all that is expected for this locality, and, for its size, synthesizes the virtues for which these azurites are famous.
Touissit mining area, Touissit District, Jerada Province, Oriental Region  Morocco (±1985)

Specimen size: 4.6 × 3.5 × 2.3 cm = 1.81” × 1.38” × 0.91”

Roselite with Calcite
 

JFD221AP7: Many isolated crystals of Roselite, without cracks or damage, of good size and luster, and with the “fresh” matrix Calcite showing no etching or corrosion.
The size of the piece and its matrix-crystal ratio are in excellent balance, and thus all seems to be in its place in this great piece, and with the intense color of the Roselite being the cherry on the cake.
Agoudal Mines, Tansifite, Agdz, Bou Azzer mining district, Zagora Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (2013)
