Touissit, Touissit District, Oujda-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
Miniature, 4.0 x 3.5 x 3.0 cm
These Moroccan vanadinites look so much like pyromorphites in crystal form that they fool a lot of collectors. This is a cluster on matrix of big, fat crystals (to 1.8 cm) of the creamy color characteristic for these. From the noted collection of Paul Jung, dispersed this year in Denver. This is old material! 4 x 3.5 x 3 cm
