RM2076   Tyrolite and chenevixite

La Amorosa mine, Villahermosa del Río, Castelló, Comunitat Valenciana, Spain

Tyrolite specimens from the Amorosa mine are a classic of Spanish mineralogy. In the cavities of the dolomitic matrix we find esthetic and brilliant aggregates of tabular, foliaceous crystals of tyrolite. The SEM-EDS analysis of this sample are consistent with those of other deposits, showing the presence of S and Zn in its composition. It is accompanied by chenevixite, an arsenate of copper and iron, olive green colour. We will send detailed analysis to the buyer.
