Cobaltlotharmeyerite from Bou Azzer dist., Anti-Atlas, Morocco
Favreau et al (MR 38-5) notes that Cobaltlotharmeyerite from Bou Azzer is the best in the world. This specimen has tiny lustrous reddish brown lamellae perched upon oxidized rosettes of Hematite. Upon the Co-lotharmeyerite are also brilliant green micro crystals of Cobaltaustinite. Along the edge of the cavity in which the crystals occur you can also see the cross section of gistening Hematite which comprise the rosettes of the oxidized red Hematite.
Beautiful thin lamellae of Cobaltlotharmeyerite crystals perched upon and included within Calcite.
