I’ve posted some excellent new specimens in this Tinejdad Red Quartz Update. The quartz crystals from the Tinejdad area in Er Rachidia Province, Morocco, contain red colouring, red zones, or distinct red phantoms, due to included iron.

I’ve added some super new specimens of erythrite from Bou Azzer, along with excellent new, very different, barite specimens from Bou Nahas. These are beautiful erythrite specimens from the contemporary classic locality generally regarded as having produced the world’s finest erythrites, and the barites are from a locality that has been known for quite some time but has been the source of a few very fine specimens more recently.
