AOUINT HOMAN. ASSA-ZAG PROVINCE, GUELMIM-OUED NOUN REGION, MOROCCO
Dimensions: 1.4 X 0.5 X 0.4 cm.
From a recent find in the Tiglit area (southwest of Guelmin), these excellent specimens of crystallized gold. They show forms between arborescent to skeletal, crystals with rounded but defined faces and edges, in which we can observe a dominant habitus of the octahedron, together with those of the cube. Aesthetic parallel growths, twinned following the spinel law, with curious hoppered structures in some of them. The analyzes show a certain Ag content, less than 7%, as is usual in Moroccan gold deposits. WEIGHT IN GRAMS OF THE GOLD: 1,23.
