Aragonite with Hematite Inclusions from Tazouta, Sefrou, Morocco
Dimension: 9.5cm x 6.6cm x 2.9cm
Locality: Tazouta (Tagnaneit; Takaneit), Sefrou Province, Fès-Meknès Region, Morocco
Large and eye-catching cluster of translucent Aragonite crystals with brown-red Hematite inclusions from Tazouta in Morocco. The Aragonite crystals are pseudohexagonal form and have unusually lustrous crystal faces. The cluster is fully crystallized all around and it is a complete floater! Rare pastel green Aragonite intergrown with the more common brown-red ones, outstanding. Aragonite of this type in small size is common but in this excellent gem quality, larger size and completeness is rather rare. The pseudohexagonal "star" crystals grown around the edges are very translucent, so stunning!
