PostPosted: Dec 23, 2015 13:44    Post subject: Re: Collection of Fiebre Verde - La Pava (#574)  

If the beryl prism is light-green, clean and bulky, it might then come from La Pava.
Unfortunately La Pava has a very erratic production and specimens from this location are rarely seen in the market.
The La Pava tunnel is located about 5km west of the historical Tequendama Muzo mining area.
Could not resist posting several images of this specimen!

PostPosted: Dec 24, 2015 12:15    Post subject: Re: Collection of Fiebre Verde - Euclase (#6101)  

I thought I could end the year on a light note.
It's Colombian, it's a beryllium mineral but it's not a beryl...
La Marina mine is also known for producing the equally desirable pink tabular fluorapatite.
Euclase was historically produced in the Chivor mining district (mainly the Gachalá mining area).
Although La Marina is just a few kilometers off the La Pita mining district, emeralds have yet to be found.
Host rock is black shale.

Happy Christmas to all of you!

Fiebre azul, why not hand over this really ugly BLUE crystal to one of these modern, state-of-the-art labs, where they will just spill over some yellow stuff to turn its awful light blue colour into a beautiful GREEN. And then, of course, trim the whole thing to a "Killer"- Thumbnail:-((((
Caso resuelto;)))

By the way, I am beginning to understand, why I see this amount of screaming fakes, even at big shows and with important dealers. You must have cornered the market for the authentic and nice specimens;)))))

Thank you so much for your interesting postings and to come to an end... felizes fiestas:)

Thanks for your nice comments minsur.

Actually La Marina could be inspirational for these labs.
I was told fluorapatite and euclase could happily coexist in La Marina (never seen this association in person...)
All they have to do is add some green et voilà... maybe I should patent this?!

Felices fiestas a todos!

Well, I really hope that my ability to spot fakes has better developed than my Spanish spelling;)))

I have not seen one of these combo specimens in person yet.
There is a quite nice specimen pictured on commercial sites. As links to commercial sites are not well received here, (even without getting any commission;-) ) I do not post the exact link.

Now, let's wait for the first three-colour-fakes:-(
Or, with some Parisite added,even 4 colours:-(((((
The good news are, La Marina specimens with its quite hard feldspar covered matrix are certainly more difficult to handle and deal with than the usual relatively soft calcite-shale stuff.

Another blue note to start the year.

These sub-parallel growth of two individual crystals are also from La Marina.

Happy new year to all the members of this glorious forum!

A really lovely piece, one more in this exceptional collection.
I'm not an expert, maybe I'm wrong but to my understanding I would say is not a twin but a sub-parallel growth of two individual crystals.

Thanks Josele for your nice comments.
To be honest I was a bit reluctant when I wrote this - I am not an expert in twinned crystals by any means.
If the consensus is that it is indeed a sub-parallel growth, could a Site Admin update my comments in the body of the message? Thanks!

PostPosted: Jan 04, 2016 17:23    Post subject: Re: Collection of Fiebre Verde - Coscuez (#577)  

Back to green territory... with lot of black crystals!
Actually the color of the calcite is closer to dark gray.
In close to 20 years, I have seen less than a handful of specimens with dark gray/black calcite.
There are some tiny pyrite crystals on the other side of the specimen.

Thanks for your comments Jamison.
Green over black definitely creates an appealing contrast, mainly seen in the Western belt localities.
Dark gray/black calcite is uncommon in the Colombian emerald districts. When combined with emeralds, it becomes a rarity.

Another specimen featuring a green-over-black contrast.
The beryl crystal is directly perched - not glued - on the black shale host rock. A Muzo classic setting.
The faces of the prism have complex dissolution patterns on the surfaces.
