F57-GLJApatite

Anemzi, Imilchil, Er Rachidia Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region, Morocco

Dimensions: 7 cm x 5 cm
Largest Crystal Size: 2.5 cm

These new Moroccan apatites at their best can be pretty darn good! This one consists of a single 1 1/16" lustrous yellow/green crystal that is perched atop a matrix of drusy quartz coated feldspar(?). The crystal came loose from it's position on the matrix and so has since been repaired.

TH5-CG7Quartz

Itremo massif, Itremo, Ambatofinandrahana, Amoron'i Mania, Madagascar

Dimensions: 10 cm x 6 cm

Sharp, lustrous quartz crystals form a cabinet sized grouping that is very pleasing to the eye. The esthetic arrangement with the main crystal towering over the others makes for quite a dramatic display piece, though there are a couple of crystals with small dings. The brown adhering clays add great contrast, texture and color to the piece, though they could easily be removed if so desired. There are contacts and minor damage around the bottom edges where the specimen contacted other pieces or possibly the pocket wall. Choice specimens of this size and quality are plentiful on the market nowadays and it is very easy to get a great one like this at shows!
