Hi!

I own some more specimens from Elmwood/Gordonsville, up to ten, because it's one of my preferences.

For twinned fluorites you can go to Mindat at https://www.mindat.org/photosearch.php and define

Mineral name: Fluorite
Region: Elmwood
Keywords in Description: twinned

But I have none.

Pyrite

Ten cube pyrite group {100}. Overall size: 195 mm x 170 mm x 148 mm. Longest edge: 55 mm. Weight: 3.9 kg. Extracted in 1984-1985. Most of the crystals had to be reattached in the original position since in that deposit they usually become loose when extracted.

Wulfenite

Wulfenite lenticular crystal. Size: 28 mm long x 27 mm wide x 14 mm thick. Weight: 27 g. It has some interest only for local collectors. Acquired from the shop 'Museu Areny' in Barcelona for €0.18 (about €6 adjusted for today's value) in 1962, so we can say the specimen had been field collected before that year.

Mina 'Teresita', in the Montcada i Reixac/Sant Fost de Campsentelles area, in the vicinity of Barcelona, Catalonia.

This specimen is no longer part of my collection.

Fluorite

A typical {100}{110} combination. The rhombododecahedral {110} faces are not etched but stepped with cubic symmetry. Size: 110 mm x 86 mm. Longest edge: 80 mm. Weight: 670 g. Purchased from Joan Montal in 1973 for €4.57.

La Collada, Siero, Asturias, Spain.

According to the opinion of Jordi Fabre this specimen seems to be too old for coming from the 'Filón Josefa-Veneros', where a lot of famous and classic pieces were found, although its provenance is indubitable: La Collada.

This specimen is no longer in my collection.

Spessartine, quartz

Spessartine garnet crystals covering the surface of black opaque quartz crystals. Curiously only the faces of the prism, not the tips, are covered. It may be considered a floater: the base was broken by tectonic movements perhaps many millions years ago, and then a second generation of quartz recrystallized on the fracture. Size: 105 mm x 75 mm. Weight: 510 g.

Pyrargyrite

Most likely from "Verdad de los Artistas" mine, Hiendelaencina, Guadalajara, Castilla-La Mancha, Spain.
