RM2185   Aragonite

La Pesquera, Cuenca, Castilla-La Mancha, Spain

Many specimens of aragonite are seen, as "pinecone" shape, also isolated, but this specimen has an "I don't know what" that makes it different for me. An elliptical "pinecone" of prismatic, divergent aragonite crystals, which are grouped around a central axis, with more developed crystals. Different and very aesthetic. A classic from Spanish mineralogy.


Size: 8.4 x 5.0 x 4.8 cm.
Found in 2012.
