RM332   Cobaltoan calcite with aragonite

Solita mine, Peramea, Baix Pallars, Catalunya, Spain

Cobaltoan calcite specimen showing brilliant carbonate growths with colours between magenta and yellow, typical for this classic Catalan mine. The mineralization is filling fissures of the Triassic conglomerates. Nowadays mine is partially collapsed and restored and it is impossible to get specimens. This sample is from a previous single finding before shaft was filled and some galleries restored.

Size: 5,4 x 5,0 x 2,4 cm.
Found in ca. 2005

Fluorescent under long wave UV
