First we went to the main source of selenite and piles of it were everywhere in all qualities. We have only bought “A” quality so in all the selenite towers, candle-holders, spheres, hearts, massage wands and palmies you should notice they will all be perfectly clean. As well as towers in 3 sizes we have a new “twin-peak” tower which is impressive and a twisty version of wand.
We have desert roses back! Plenty of small and medium sizes all clean and good shapes……….these are found in the Alferya region. Also back by popular demand are the Aragonite “sputniks”, plenty of top notch small-medium sizes plus a few very large show pieces.
On the mineral front we have very nice Haematite specimens from Tauis, lovely bobbly nodules and some radiating crystal forms. In Azurite we have the regular popluar small roses druze plus one box of really cracking show specimens for your serious collectors. Beautiful pink Cobalticalcites from Warzazate with some really good specimens. Manganese native ore which is new also from Wazazate.
Now come the majorly exciting limited collections which will only be going to a few of our shops. World class Vanadanite crystals from Mibladew, bright orange large clean crystals on matrix ….most at around ￡350- ￡400 but a few smaller and a couple of really big pieces too ( up to ￡950). New to Crystals is Brochantite from Wajda, really lovely pale green with a similar vibe to the green Apophylite which we used to get from Poona India…..mostly in the ￡50 range. Azurite on matrix specimens from Msisi. Perhaps best of all, 5 world class specimens of Native Silver….fabulous crystals which will need to be kept in dry airtight containers to prevent oxidation, these will be around ￡350-￡400 each from Bouwazar.
Back to more basics we have the Pretus trilobites again and the Metacantini trilobites. All fossils are going up in prices as other opportunities for employment which are more lucrative are now emerging as Morocco becomes more prosperous, particularly in fruit production with improved irrigation, so we will keep prices as low as we can for now but the time to buy is now!
Orthocerus is back with single, double , triple and multi plates; sculptures in different sizes, and yes we have also very small singles the best of which we will be setting as silver pendants in due course. We will also have a small range ( initially), of bowls in orthocerus/goniatite.
Sharks teeth we have thousands of small kiddy sized teeth as well as medium sizes. We may set some of these as silver pendants too if they are good enough.
Lastly we have a good collection of the white Moroccan geodes,from small kiddy sizes to large show pieces, and 100 Septarian nodule cut and polished halves which are a bit different and nice and cheap!
