Erythrite
stock #22.1-547
Aghbar Mine, Aghbar, Agdz Cercle, Zagora Province
Draa-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
5 x 3 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $950
Fall 22

Vivid and sharp leafy crystals of red-purple Erythrite in very fine condition. This has a bright silky luster and the crystals are translucent to transparent when backlit. The largest crystals in the cluster are 2 CM across and there is no eye-visible damage on the main crystals. There are several very strong display angles. This type of Moroccan Erythrites are certainly the best in the world, in fact there are very few localities for good Erythrite crystals worldwide. Only the old German specimens come close to these in quality but they are rarely this well-defined and are always very expensive. The production is sporadic and sometimes years will pass with no new finds. This is from an early 2022 find and is far more esthetic than most.

Roselite on Calcite
stock #21.1-320
Aghbar Mine, Aghbar, Agdz Cercle, Zagora Province
Draa-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
3.3 x 1.8 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $90
New Year 22

A well crystalized thumbnail sized Roselite with fine color and gemmy crystals. In very good condition as seen, from the great finds at Aghbar Mine which produced some of the very best Cobalt minerals of all time.

Cobaltoan Calcite
stock #A-24-588
Aghbar Mine, Aghbar, Agdz Cercle, Zagora Province
Ouarzazate Province, Morocco
6.6 x 4.5 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
Pre Holiday 2017

A very bright color rounded knob that is also covered with rounded crystals of rich magenta-purple Co Calcite. The back and botton are the attachment points where this was broken from the bedrock but the display surface (front, top and sides) is in perfect condition and very impressive. The individual crystals have a bright wet-look luster and many are also two toned making a very eyecatching display. This locale has now been flooded and we do not expect to see the produced again. A future classic with the unique color that makes the best of these so desirable. Choice.

Roselite & Calcite (Cobaltoan) w. Goethite
stock #15.1-297
Aghbar Mine, Aghbar, Agdz Cercle, Zagora Province
Souss-Massa-Draa region, Ouarzazate Province, Tazenakht, Morocco
6 x 3.6 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $580
Post Tucson 2015

Large deep purple-red crystals of Roselite in a vug decorated with fine Cobaltoan Calcites as accents. Well-composed and showy, the biggest crystals are 1.4 cm which is huge for the specie. In perfect condition inside the vug, outside a thin rim of chipping is noted where this was removed. Very strong display impact for the size.
