A spectacular museum quality Gypsum wrapped Brochantite specimen from Touissit-Bou Beker, L'oriental Region, Morocco.  Optic clear Gypsum var. Selenite completely coated the Brochantite, on a light reddish brown matrix of Ferroan Dolomite.  The spherical shaped Brochantite crystals are in the finest vivid turquoise blue color, contrasting nicely against the rugged geography of the Dolomite.  A winning collector's piece and rare as the mines operated by the Compagnie Minière de Touissit were shut down in 2002.
