OKL-564    Vanadinite    Upper Moulouya District, Meknes- Tafilalet Region, Mibaden, Kkenifra Prov., Morocco.  An aesthetic 4.2 x 3.5 x 1.8 cm cluster of bright white barite blades setup an attractive contrast for the rich red, translucent vanadinite crystals.  This is a floater with only two tiny chips noticeable only with magnification.  Minor brown staining on back only.  Common material of uncommon quality.  $35

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKL-576

OKL-576   Quartz with Goethite    Tichka Massif, High Atlas Mountains, Morocco.  This example is an aesthetic geode shaped piece totally filled with short, stocky Herkimer diamond like, single and double terminated crystals that are transparent and high in luster.  They are often included by sprays of acicular brown to tan colored goethite crystals with the goethite extending out of the quartz in many instances.  The effect of this mineral combination is pleasing and to a quartz collector this material is certainly desirable.  I have not seen much of this material available (only with one other dealer at Tucson this year, 2014) so I am assuming it remains uncommon. 11 x 9 x 6 cm overall and totally damage free.  $195
