Shelter Rock Minerals - Goethite from Taouz + more

14th May 2018

For our Spring 2018 we have some new and exciting specimens. First, there is a small but very nice lot that we acquired recently of Goethite from Taouz, Morocco. The Goethite here occurs very pieces with a fierce jet-black color and very high, almost brilliant luster. Some specimens show a botryoidal habit, and some show the nice silky chestnut-brown side banding so typical of Goethite. All in all, specimens that are quite elegant.
Then, we have a small quantity of some very rare and unusual specimens for the mineralogist in you., typical of what we look for here at Shelterrock.
In 50 years of mineral collecting, we never have seen or had specimens of ultra-rare Montbrayite or Krantzite. We have them here. Also a hard one to get, a nice Simpsonite thumbnail crystal. There is even a specimen from Antartica! A nice eclectic mix for our new update!
