PostPosted: Jun 18, 2018 06:41    Post subject: Question regarding Portuguese minerals  

Hello,

Is there someone here from Portugal or who is experienced with Portuguese minerals?
Could you please tell me from your experience which are the representative Portuguese minerals, worth collecting? I ask because I’m going to go to Portugal this month and I will like to get some insight. I’m always trying to prepare myself a little bit when travelling abroad, who knows?
Any advice regarding places to visit in Portugal for a mineral collector?
From what I know Portugal is a rich country from the mineralogical point of view with a complex geology albeit it’s relative small size. I know about the fluorapatite, wolframite and arsenopyrite from Panasqueira mine.

Thank you in advance!

Some of the largest beryl XX in Europe can be found there. I believe the quarry is an active one just East of Porto. You'd need permission.

To look more broadly at Portuguese minerals, go to the mindat page for that country:
https://www.mindat.org/loc-14425.html

There you will find some basic info on the country, a list of all the minerals found there (that are in the mindat database), and a zoomable map showing the distribution of mineral localities.
