To be more accurate, your Wulfenite comes from Sidi Amer, Touissit. I already added it to your text.

@Carles: Thanks, i'm glad you like the specimens and my photos!

@Jordi: I already wondered how "Sidi Amer" was provided in my locality information without any effort on my part - i began to doubt my sanity ;) I only knew the specimen comes from Toussit. But knowing that you are an expert for Moroccan minerals, i'm glad you made my locality information more detailed, thanks!

Here's another specimen from my Namibia collection, a dioptase on matrix from Kaokoveld Plateau:

Garnet from Canada. I will give this specimen some trimming to remove the parts of former crystals on the upper left, then it will be a neat miniature.

Concerning the green mineral next to the grossular - am i right that it is diopside?
