A stunning specimen of gemmy Gypsum wrapped Brochantite aggregatess on a Ferroan Dolomite matrix from Touissit-Bou Beker, L'oriental Region, Morocco. Mines operated by the Compagnie Minière de Touissit had been shut down in 2002 so this species are difficult to acquire on the minerals market now.  The centered Brochantite crystals aggregate displays a pastel green color, contrasting nicely against the rugged geography of the reddish brown Dolomite.  Associated with several groups of lime-green colored Brochantite, it is so colorful and attractive.  Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand as pictured.
