RM989   Barite with calcite

Moscona mine, Villabona area, Solís, Corvera de Asturias, Asturias, Spain

These specimens have given more than a headache. They have sometimes been cited as celestine from Moscona mine. This specimen shows a group of barite prismatic crystals very rich in faces, with the combination of various orthorhombic prisms and pinacoids. Transparency is excellent and with an amazing brilliance. They are disposed in a matrix with white crystals of calcite. Very few specimens in collections.

RM1932   Fluorite with baryte

Moscona mine, Villabona area, Solís, Corvera de Asturias, Asturias, Spain

Historically the most representative fluorite specimens from mina Moscona are yellow, recently some of violet tones have been collected. This ancient specimen is one of the few that appeared in the mine with this pink to purple color, with zoning. It is a floater, formed by growths of cubic crystals with faces with polysynthetic growths, very brilliant and translucent. They are partially covered with sharp tabular barite crystals, between transparent to opaque on the outer edges. No damage, good size and fluorescent (UV-LW). A very unusual piece for this classic Spanish mine, from a former German collection.
