PostPosted: Apr 08, 2017 00:15    Post subject: Collection of Firmo Espinar  

Hello,

I will begin showing you my little mineral collection.

I think the beginning may be a very small gold specimen, like a sweet tribute to my twenty century mining family.

This is a gold from the María Josefa Mine in the village called Rodalquilar in Almería, Andalucía, Spain.

Approximately a hundred years ago the father of my grandmother was a lawyer in Almería, and they paid him a job with a 15% of the mine actions.
So this was a familiar mine during more than forty years, sixty perhaps.

The following samples of this mine I´ll show has been picked by my friend Adrian Pesudo, a micromount specialist and great expert in María Josefa Mine.

He sent me many Mª Josefa micros and I sent him another kind of crystals (wine fillings).

Regards.

Really fine quartz from Muzo! And concerning the barite from Dreislar, do you have also other minerals from Germany?

I've always loved the yellow Moscona mine fluorites, with their sprinkling of pearly dolomites on top! Nice ones.

Hello and thanks to Tobi, Alfredo, Carles and Carrizo.

I think this barite is the only German beauty in my army. I´ll try to look for more German stones.

Alfredo I like your description. I need to update my forgotten English.

See you soon.
Firmo.

Nice aragonite. I am always amazed how they remove and clean them without too much damage.

I am not quite sure I understand your measurements for this Maria Josefa Mine MALACHITE specimen. Are the given measurements for the whole specimen or the green malachite portion? If for the whole specimen, wouldn't the interesting part, the malachite, be only several millimeters across and be the important measurement to give?

In general, when a specimen is large and/or untrimmed and contains a tiny thumbnail or micro sized interesting area, shouldn't both the measurements of the specimen and the interesting area in question be given?
In field collecting, I often came home with large untrimmed examples containing small crystals. I took pictures, but was never much interested in giving the measurements of the whole untrimmed specimen.

Hi Bob.

Thank you for your message.

I´ve surely done a rare mix with the measures.

I´ll try to give the FOV of every picture with the micros. As you say, they are the principals in their post.

Now a small wulfenite.

Regards.
