Q is for Quartz

Another mineral for this A-Z, quartz on a Moroccan stamp sent just in the last few weeks (and saving me from going with Q is for Queen ;) .

Don't be fooled, this stamp is tiny (slightly smaller than a Royal Mail Machin definitive). It was issued last year in a set of 10 'Roches du Maroc'. I couldn't find a nice image of the set unfortunately.

Sent on this lovely postcard from Eva.

For more Q subjects on postage head over to explore the links at Sunday Stamps.


  1. Not exactly nice, but here you have teh official image of the set.

    1. Thanks for the link - sadly it is such a tiny image, like the stamp itself :)

  2. I hate it when a beautiful stamp is too tiny to really enjoy the image.

  3. A very original contribution for the Q and I love this stamp! Fortunately the scanned/blogged stamp is larger than the original so we can study more detaols now!

  4. Nice Q, I thought it was a shell at first, of course I should have read the text but the colour hit got my eyes first. Love the serene passage on the card.

  5. Great Q, glad we can see the larger image.
