RM2907   Scheelite, Uralite (amphibole Supergroup) and Epidote

Burguillos del Cerro, Badajoz, Extremadura, Spain

Excellent specimen, with a good size, of granatite with vugs filled by epidote crystals, on which olive green fibrous aggregates of uralite stand out. The most remarkable are several well-formed crystals of scheelite, a species difficult to find locally, highly fluorescent under short-wave UV. It belongs from the Manchion collection and it was acquired from Joan Viñals in 1990.

RM2194   Scapolite (Meionite), magnetite, epidote and actinolite

Burguillos del Cerro, Badajoz, Extremadura, Spain

Aggregates of prismatic crystals of meionite, with cross-linked and parallel growths. It is arranged in a matrix with octahedral magnetite crystals, green epidote and actinolite fibers. Joan Viñals indicated on the label of this specimen (we will send to the buyer) meionite, although specimens such as marialite are described in the area. The marialite-meionite series refers to the proportion of Na and Ca, both of the escapolite group. "Probably from the La Herrería mine where it usually appears in magnetite vugs as acicular and radial aggregates of tetragonal prisms, sometimes centimetric, whitish to transparent" (Mti-Blog).

Size: 6.6 x 3.8 x 3.8 cm.
Main crystal: 1.8 cm.
Found in ±1991.
