Very nice specimens, Rob. The Naica gypsum is quite unsual, a great natural sculpture. And I just love that Joplin Field galena, simply perfect!

Regards
Tobi

Thank you Tobi for your nice words. On the label it says that it's from "The Cave of Swords", but I doubt if that is true so I did not mention it. I hope not, they better leave that cave alone!

A question:

The next piece I bought on the internet at an auction. The seller says he has a mineral shop in Sevilla and has 30 years experience with minerals.
I could not find any reference to the location "Albero Quarrys, Alcalá de Guadaira, Sevilla, Andalusia, Spain", but the seller says it is a new find of 2019. He also mentioned that the matrix is "calcarenita" which contains small fossil remains formed by the accumulation of detritic materials.

Question : can anybody confirm this (especially the location)?

Greetings,
Rob

Two minutes ago I received a mail from the seller. He wrote the following:

"Hello, the provenance is correct. I have discovered them myself and extracted them from the quarry. It is not in Mindat because it is a new, exclusive, and currently secret discovery.
Kind regards, Salvador Álvarez"

So I think "Albero quarries" is a temporary name.

Greetings,
Rob

Albero is a type of rock.

https://www.linguee.es/espanol-ingles/traduccion/albero.html

There are about 5 quarries near the town (look on Google Earth). So I guess it could be from one of those quarries near the town? Or from somewhere else completely, and he names this town with quarries to help hide the locality.

Some thoughts on where it is from, from our local Spanish collectors.

You can see similar material as you drive along the A-92 highway from Seville towards Arahal, near a place called Majadillas. It can also be found in the cement works on the right if you drive on the A-92 from Alcalá towards Seville. The latter is easier to visit during the weekends so might be more likely. There are, however, other possibilities so it is not certain where he is finding them.

Give us a few weeks and we will get the right locality for you

This shows you all the quarries we know about, by name. We do not, yet, know which one your specimen might have come from

Hello James,

Thank you very much for your replies. I am very curious if you and/or the people you are referring to, can find the right location. By the way: it is OK for me that someone wants to keep the locality secret for a period of time (that's rather usual), but it is also OK that others try to find that of course. I hope you are successful.
Again, thank you,

Cheers Rob

Rob

So far, they are not sure which quarry he found them in, but they (local collectors, not me) think the find was a few years ago, so it will be hard to confirm as the area will have been worked through.

I guess your label should be 'Alcalá de Guadaira, Sevilla, Andalusia, Spain'

James
