RM335   Cobaltoan calcite with aragonite

Solita mine, Peramea, Baix Pallars, Catalunya, Spain

A nice cobaltoan calcite specimen showing polished concretionary growths with a good and deep color and including white aragonite. The mineralization is filling fissures of the Triassic conglomerates, which are visible in this specimen. Main side shows a polished section where we can enjoy perfectly banded purple calcite and conglomerate individual clasts. Nowadays mine is partially collapsed and restored and it is impossible to get specimens.

Size: 8,0 x 3,9 x 0,6 cm.
