Pharmacosiderite and Karibibite

ID: CC1727

Intergrown cubic crystals of Pharmacosiderite are seen forming a cluster, and a ribbon like extension atop the specimen. The specimen comes from the well known mining area of Bou Azzer, Morocco. Crystals of Pharmacosiderite are gemmy green with excellent lustre measuring to around 1mm. The Pharmacosiderite has formed on white translucent micro-botryoidal crystalline Scorodite. The specimen is richly covered in yellow to yellow-brown Karibibite and reddish Iron oxides. The formation of these three Iron Arsenates is the result of the oxidation of the probable Lollingite matrix. A great Iron Arsenate combo specimen.
