Toussit Mine, Atlas Mountains, Morocco
Large Cabinet, 16.1 x 12.1 x 4.7 cm
Ex. Tom Gressman
A rare, huge plate, featuring butterscotch-colored, platy crystals to over an inch in size! This old material is incredibly hard to obtain in any sizeable specimen, and nothing like it has been found here in 20 years or more. The crystals combine two syles. Some are very sharp squared blades with beveled edges, as you see with Arizona wulfenite for example. The other style are large, flanged crystals with irregular edges, that look more organic than anything, and reach 3 cm in size. The juxtaposition of the two styles is striking!
