An excellent, well formed complex Phosgenite from Touissit, Morocco. Ex Charles Noll collection, this is crystalized all around, nearly all transparent gem clear and with an elaborate shape. Touissit Phosgenites are only rarely available, they are regarded as some of the worlds best. Much less common on the market than the Sardinian Phosgenites, these were only discovered shortly before the mine closed for good. This is in fine condition as seen, which is also very rare with this delicate and brittle mineral.
