An excellent specimen of Siderite with Quartz from the Iouriren (Gold) Mine, Akka, Morocco. The specimen displays a branch-like formation of stacked parallel rhombic crystals of Siderite, measuring to 2.7cm. The light tan Siderite crystals have excellent well formed lustrous faces, and are slightly translucent. A gemmy-translucent Faden crystal of colourless-white Quartz forms a prominent feature of the specimen, positioned at an angle across the Siderite. The underside and back of the specimen also show crystals of similar Faden Quartz. An attractive specimen from this privately owned Gold mine.
