...I leave two more things for my next post: spectacular Proustites that were found again in Aït Ahmane in the month of April of this year and that are somewhat different from the previous ones being in a matrix of something which looks like Safflorite or Rammelsbergite and also by minor associated Actinolite, and the spectacular Fluor-liddicoatite found in the Sahatany Valley area of Madagascar.


Here are the other "interesting things" that were missing, to which I add one example of the new Bournonites from the Stan Trg mine in Trepča, Kosovo.




Bournonite in Pyrite from the Stan Trg mine, similar to those found in the past, but which have never been frequent in Trepča and of which we had no news after long time.






For a few months there have been seen these specimens of Fluor-Liddicoatite from the Sahatany Valley, in the Province of Antananarivo, Madagascar. This one is from March of this year and apart from the fact that the crystals are very well defined and well finished, the transparency is excellent and their color, as of wine, seems to me different from what is usual there.




In December 2018, extraordinary Proustites appeared in the Bouismas and Aït Ahmane Mines both in the Bou Azzer area, Morocco, reaching up to 7 cm. but in April-May of this year in AÏt Ahmane there has been a new finding of Proustite, this time on a matrix of something that looks like Safflorite or Rammelsbergeite (although it could be anything else)
Delicious, as you can see in this photo of Jeff Scovil

PostPosted: Jul 13, 2019 13:31    Post subject: Sainte Marie-aux-Mines Show 2019 - Reviews of the Newspapers  

Barcelona 13/07/2018

One of the things that helps to better understand the atmosphere of the Shows are the reviews of the local newspapers. Thanks to the help of Pina and Gérard Schneller we can see the vision of the St. Marie Show of the local newspaper DNA.

This time the quality of the scanner is not the desirable due some technical issues. In case you really want to read well these files you can go to the web page of the DNA and find them there.

Thanks Pina and Gérard!

PostPosted: Jul 13, 2019 14:13    Post subject: Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines 2019 - Au Revoir!  

Ste. Marie has already finished for me, I hope others are still encouraged and publish more photos about this so hot edition. I remember once more that in the Spanish side there is a lot of information and images (6 pages and over 500 images at this time)

Ste. Marie is like a kind of anchor with the past. Is the third most important Mineral Show in the world and one can find there details as endearing as the ad below that could be placed on one of the billboards of the "Piscine" almost as much as the minerals in the veins of the Vallée of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines!😁

I still have you in my heart Ste. Marie

Hi,
Wiluite crystallizes in the tetragonal system and occurs in well-formed crystals with good external form. It is isostructural with vesuviante. Formerly, it was regarded as a variety of Vesuvianite (Fabre's specimen).
