ITEM: CRYSTAL ROCK FROM MOROCCO NORTH AFRICA
LARGEST PIECE (SIZE): 51 X 42 X 25 MM

MOROCCO IS RICH IN MINERALS.
Morocco produced 17% of the world’s output of phosphate rock, 6% of the world’s output of barite, 2% of the world’s output of cobalt, 2% of the world’s output of fluorspar, and 1% of the world’s output of lead (Guberman, 2010; Jasinski, 2010; Miller, 2010a, b; Shedd, 2010).
Mining was significant to the Moroccan economy. The country was home to more than 90 mining companies that produced 20 different minerals and accounted for about 35% of foreign trade, including about 75% of Morocco’s exports (in terms of tonnage) and 6% of the gross domestic product. Morocco hosts several world-class deposits, including Bou-Azzer, which was the world’s only deposit where cobalt was mined as a primary product, and the Imiter silver deposit. The Office Chérifien des Phosphates’ (OCP’s) phosphate deposits contained more than 30% of the world’s total phosphate reserves (MarketResearch.com, 2009).
