New Barite from Morocco
Posted by: Raymond McDougall on 10.25.2015 | Filed under: Latest, Recent Mineral Updates

 

I’ve added a new Morocco Update (click here) featuring a small number of excellent quality blue barite specimens from the Sidi Lahcen Mine, from beautiful cabinet specimens to super miniatures. These specimens are from a 2013 find of amazing top-quality crystals and crystal groups. The pieces from this find have sharp crystals, with nice, consistent  colour, excellent lustre and good transparency. The specimens in this update were selected for their high quality (so many specimens from the Sidi Lahcen finds were quite damaged) and aesthetic crystal arrangements.
