Bou Azzer has produced the world’s finest specimens for erythrite, roselite, roselite-beta, talmessite, wendwilsonite, skutterudite and gersdorffite. About 215 mineral species have been identified from the district, of which six were new to science: irhtemite, arhbarite, nickelaustinite, wendwilsonite, bouazzerite, and maghrebite. Bou Azzer is also considered to be the world’s best (or at least second best) locality for the very rare species cobaltarthurite, cobaltaustinite, cobaltlotharmeyerite, karibibite and guanacoite.

The text has been translated by Thomas Moore from the German Lapis magazine. It appeared originally as a group of separate articles in Lapis, volume 31, no 7/8 2006, which were combined into one.
