PostForum: FOR BEGINNERS: What is it? Where is it from?   Posted: Feb 28, 2018 15:04   Subject: Re: From Mexico
Hey James,

Do you have a better pic? I could then try to answer your questions.
But what makes you think pyrargyrite? And Taxco?
Specimen size? Matrix?

Thanks,
Jean

Sorry Peter,

I thought one of the wulfenite, if I recall, had a european locality (i.e. the reason for my comment). I must have read it wrongly.

Cheers

Joe,

the matrix on these is often a mixture of calcite and wollastonite. I have never checked if at this locality they were but in principle, both can be.

Is your matrix hard or soft.

I agree with Peter, I didn't want to mention it but some is partially included in the calcite. And considering the deposit type, a side with Peter as well, difficult for it to be tremolite.

Thank you for offering Lluis.

I do not believe it is gypsum. It is not from Milpillas.

Cheers
