Touissit Mine, Oujda, Morocco
Miniature, 3.2 x 2.5 x 2.3 cm
Choice, gem clear, light yellow Anglesite from the famous Touissit Mine in Morocco. The Anglesite has very good luster, and there is a spherical zone low in the crystal that is a deeper, richer yellow, as if a tennis ball were suspended within the crystal. This prismatic crystal is thicker than the more classic tabular habit, and has a great termination. It was contacted along one narrow dimension, but the crystal is so gemmy that this does not really affect the overall presentation. Excellent aesthetics - this is a significant Anglesite thumbnail!
