I’ve posted a small number of specimens in this Morocco Update. From a recent find at Mibladen, there are vibrant orange wulfenite crystals – the colour of these crystals is intense. I have also posted top quality blue barites from Jebel Ouichane – these are from about four years ago (this locality is no longer producing).
