Skutterudite -large well defined crystals
stock #18.1-095
Bouismas Mine, Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht
Ouarzazate Province, Morocco
7.7 x 6.7 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $675
Spring update

Bright metalic large crystals in an esthetic cluster well exposed and isolated on matrix. Nearly pure Skutterudite with just a few specks of contrasting white Calcite. Modern classics, Moroccan specimens of this calibre are world class, and by far the best of the specie. Better in person this is a striking piece in hand with sharp definitions.
Skutterudite (large crystals on matrix)
stock #11.1-W60
Bouismas Mine, Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht
Ouarzazate Province, Morocco
6.8 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $380


Big (up to 4.2 cm), sharp shining metallic silver crystals clustered on matrix. Esthetic with better than average presentation, this is excellent specimen of this cobalt arsenide. Without doubt the Bou Azzer area produced the very best of the specie, prior to these the best were German, rare, expensive and far less pretty. The display side of this is in excellent condition. It is contacted on the right side and has damage at the rear where it was removed, not seen in normal display. This locality still produces a few good pieces every few years but it will not last forever. These are future classics especially when they are this good.
