home / agates worldwide / Africa / Morocco / Tarfaya,  Atlantic-shoreline

“… On the Mineralientage show in Munich in the year 2011 for the first time beautiful agatized turritellae found in Morocco were offered. Morroccan salesman offered several well distinguishable species. The places of discovery are situated on the shoreline of the Atlantic in southernmost Morocco. After storms one can gather hundreds of these snails on the beaches. Species in a good condition are however very rare. The agates in the center exhibit rarely a weak banding. …”
