Gersdorffite with Annabergite
Alt Ahmane, Bou Azer, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province, Souss Massa Draa Region, Morocco
42mm x 35mm x 27mm
Gersdorffite in good or sizable crystals has been super rare until this one small discovery. This is a very fine piece and is the best example we have had from the world class 2014 Bou Azzer find. Sharp lustrous octahedra in a cluster with contrasting green Annabergite shows this Nickel specie well. A brittle mineral, this has some cracks and chipping on some crystals but overall is in exceptional condition. Sharp crystals to 2.3 CM is quite impressive for this specie.
No-one has added this to their favourites.
