PostPosted: Aug 02, 2020 12:46    Post subject: Popular Minerals - Wurtzite with Galena from the Ánimas Mine, Bolivia  

Rosette growths of lamellar Wurtzite crystals with a very sharp hexagonal contour and unusually large in size for the species, on matrix and with cube-octahedral crystals of Galena. This well-known specimen, which comes from the Rock Currier collection (No. 6516), is considered the best of the find and among the most reputable.

PostPosted: Aug 05, 2020 16:56    Post subject: Popular Minerals - Fluorapatite from Panasqueira, Portugal  

The upper levels of the great classic mine of Panasqueira are now producing very good specimens. We have gone from a period of scarcity to the current wealth, but in my opinion we are in a transitory period that may end when the mine goes to different areas. So far several pieces as this zoned crystal of Fluorapatite, isolated and well placed on its matrix of Quartz and Muscovite, have been recovered.

Minas da Panasqueira, levels 0-1, Aldeia de São Francisco de Assis, Covilhã, Castelo Branco, Cova da Beira, Centro, Portugal
