Arteal Tunnel, Socavón Santa Bárbara, El Arteal, Cuevas de Almanzora, Almería, Andalucía, Spain

Group of flattened tabular jarosite crystals, very sharp and rich in faces, with an intense luster and brown color. We would like to emphasize the transparence and the crystal size.
This sample is from the Arteal tunnel (also known as Santa Bárbara pit), today it is impossible to collect more specimens because tunnel collapsed in first months of 2011.

Main crystal: 2,5 x 2 mm.
Found in 2010
