RM1804   Cobaltoan calcite

Solita mine, Peramea, Baix Pallars, Catalunya, Spain

Nice specimen of cobaltoan calcite with an excellent quality that shows concretionary growths and an incredibly intense color, very deep, with marked zoning. It has been slightly acidulated to obtain a shiny surface that allows to see the color structures without resorting to polishing. A piece full of light, a gem from a mine that exploded precisely to obtain such type of specimens and nowadays totally abandoned and collapsed.


Size: 6.5 x 4.5 x 4.3 cm.

Fluorescent under long wave UV
 

RM339   Cobaltoan calcite with aragonite

Solita mine, Peramea, Baix Pallars, Catalunya, Spain

Cobaltoan calcite specimen showing 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: 7,0 x 3,6 x 0,7 cm.

RM337   Cobaltoan calcite with aragonite

Solita mine, Peramea, Baix Pallars, Catalunya, Spain

A nice cobaltoan calcite specimen showing concretionary growths with a good and deep colour. The mineralization is filling fissures of the Triassic conglomerates, which are very 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.
