Appreciate your kind words Pierre!
The word ‘Morralla’ describes the opaque low-grade rough material mainly used for cheap jewelry and handicrafts.
When mining for emeralds, the presence of morralla is sometimes a good indicator of crystallized emeralds in the vicinity.

PS: Should be 'Morralla' and not 'Moralla' as initially written. Thanks for pointing this out Jordi!

Muzo crystal coated with calcite and pyrite.
Dark tone is due to the presence of carbonaceous inclusions, which is quite common in Muzo.

Hello Firmo
Appreciate your comment... and very well protected ones!
Due to a higher density of inclusions, color is much darker at the base that in the upper part.
