Goethite

Locality:

Aït Ahmane, Bou Azer District (Bou Azzer District), Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province, Souss-Massa-Draâ Region, Morocco

Very nice and funny specimen that shows two generations of goethite. One of them as globular brown aggregates accompanied by a second generation of acicular yellow to toasted honey colour crystals. Partially covering a pink dolomite matrix. Very unusual.
