Roselite, Calcite
Cabinet, 9.6 x 6.0 x 4.0 cm
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province, Souss-Massa-Draa Region, Morocco
Now here is an interesting, uncommon and PRETTY combination of Bou Azzer minerals both of which get their color from the cobalt content: the roselite (very closely related to wendwilsonite, by the way), an intense deep scarlet, and the calcite, of course, a pretty pastel pink. You see specimens of each coming from Morocco lately, but typically not both together like this! 9.6 x 6 x 4 cm
