Description

Incredible perfect balanced combination from Morocco! Even if this paragenese is pretty common for this location, this particular example definitely stands out the crowd in several aspects of quality and esthetics! A perfect bed of deep orange and well formed blades of baryte that are hosting not only one, but two even perfecr crystals of lustrous and gemmy cerussite at the very top center. In terms of colour the cerussite appears almost golden shining and they are that perfectly exposed and beautifully arranged that this example is probably one of a few  hundret.
