RF241: Erythrite and Quartz
Bou Azzer Mine, Bou Azzer District, Ouarzazate Province, Morocco
Miniature - 4.4 x 3.7 x 3.7 cm (1.7 x 1.5 x 1.5 inches)
Weight - 62 grams including stand (0.14 pounds)
ex Roy Foerster collection
Specimen status: Sold

A cluster of deep magenta-red erythrite blades on a bit of matrix. The erythrite crystals have excellent pearly luster, reach about 1.6 cm in length, and most terminations are intact. (The few damaged terminations are, I think, inconsequential.) A few tiny quartz crystals also present. Displays beautifully on its acrylic base, which could be removed if desired. An outstanding erythrite for the price. Previous dealer label with a $250 price.
