Nadorite

ID: CC1608

A large specimen of the rare mineral Nadorite from the Type locality at Djebel Nador, Algeria. The specimen displays a number of areas with intergrown platy-bladed crystal of Nadorite measuring to around 1cm. The crystals vary in colour from pastel yellow to brown. Tiny white-colourless micro-crystals of Cerussite are apparent on the Nadorite. The Nadorite crystals are also partly covered by what appears to be colourless Gypsum. The specimen comes with several old labels one of which is a handwritten Dr. F. Krantz of Bonn. A rich specimen from the Type locality.
