RM2583   Doubly terminated quartz

Serrabal mine, Vedra, A Coruña, Galícia, Spain

Group of doubly terminated quartz crystals, with developed prisms and defined terminal faces, translucent. With interesting parallel growths. These specimens were collected in this A Coruña quarry that exploits quartz, one of the main mines in the world due to the quality and quantity of its reserves. The mine was discovered in 1968 by three Galicians who gave their name (from their surnames SEñarís, RAma and BALboa) to the concession and who found it while exploring these mountains in the Pico Sacro area in search of "seixo" (from the Galician: hard white rock) of good quality.


Size: 10.2 x 3.6 x 2.6 cm.

RM2406   Metatorbernite with quartz

Calo, Vimianzo, A Coruña, Galicia, Spain

Group of very sharp metatorbernite crystals with an intense green grass color, showing the combination of the first and the second order dipyramids, truncated by pinacoidal faces. Its intense color gives a nice contrast with the white quartz matrix. Large open cast mines ans small prospects of kaolinite with some quartz veins in which torbernite crystals have been found. We could say that this locality is included in the most worldwide important torbernite localities due to the crystal quality, size and multiple habits.


Size: 5.9 x 4.5 x 2.2 cm.

Presents radioactive activity.

RM2245   Kyanite after andalucite

Touro - O Pino, A Coruña, Galícia, Spain

The specimens of this species have been known since ancient times as pseudomorphic kyanite after andalusite. Both species are polymorphic, so substitution is not a rare case. The label says "Santiago de Compostela", but from what we have investigated, it is the area of the Conceilhos de Touro and O Pino, to the E. of Santiago, where for decades this material was worked as kyanite. A piece with history ...
