RM1821   Fluorite

Berta quarry, El Papiol - Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

Rich druse of fluorite crystals. This kind of octahedral crystals show a special brilliance due to the multiple growths of small crystals on the faces of the octahedron. This fact gives them a rough surface. Translucent, with good green color and good size. The Berta quarry-mine is in the process of filling and restoration. Not oiled. An old specimen ca. 1985, from Manchion Collection.


Size: 13.0 x 6.5 x 4.4 cm.
Main crystal: 8 x 8 mm.
Found in ±1985.

RM545   Fluorite

Berta quarry, El Papiol - Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

A group of fluorite crystals those, at first glance, seem just octahedra, but if you take a look carefully you will see complex terminations. Some crystals are isolated increasing its aesthetics. Good transparence and exceptional green color. Acompanied by small quartz crystals.
This specimen belongs to the "old" fluorites from Berta quarry, from an area of ​​sericitized granodiorite. In the fractures, if it was enough space, they grew lining the walls. When quarry worked lower levels fluorite appeared in fresh granite matrix, but mostly without this depth of color. A great speciemen. A classic between classics of our country.


Size: 13,2 x 9,0 x 5,5 cm.
Main crystal: 11 x 10 mm.
Found in 1980's.

RM1435   Octahedral Fluorite with calcite

Berta quarry, El Papiol - Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

Group of fluorite crystals with an intense green color, with transparence, brilliance and sharp edges and faces. Transparence allows us to see an opalescent crystal core on which the crystal has grown with greater transparency. They are disposed isolated on the matrix which gives a superior quality to this specimen. It is accompanied by small rhombohedral calcite crystals and some crystals of pyrite totally pseudomorphed by goethite. Very fluorescent. On a matrix with quartz crystals. Samples with this fine quality are very difficult to find, considering that the quarry is closed to the collectors and the works have been interrupted. From a classic locality.


Size: 8.2 x 4.7 x 2.2 cm.
Main crystal: 14 x 14 mm.
Found in 1990's

RM1271   Octahedral fluorite with calcite and pyrite

Berta quarry, El Papiol - Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

Group of octahedral crystals of fluorite, nice green color, transparent to translucent and very well defined faces and edges. Peppered by small crystals of pyrite with complex shapes and even tabular appearance. They are disposed on a matrix with calcite and pyrite. From a classic Catalan locality. Fluorescence (UV-LW) is red for calcite and blue for fluorite.


Size: 11.5 x 5.7 x 5.0 cm.

RM543   Fluorite with Quartz

Berta quarry, El Papiol - Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

A classic between classics of our country. This is a druse of fluorite crystals those, at first glance, seem just octahedra, but if you take a look carefully you will see vertices truncated by cube. Some crystals show parallel growth and other are interpenetrated. Good transparence and exceptional green color. Acompanied by small quartz crystals.
This specimen belongs to the "old" fluorites from Berta quarry, from an area of ​​sericitized granodiorite. In the fractures, if it was enough space, they grew lining the walls. When quarry worked lower levels fluorite appeared in fresh granite matrix, but mostly without this depth of color. A great specimen.

RM1998   Greenockite

Berta quarry, El Papiol - Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

Curious specimen of greenockite of this classic locality of the Catalan mineralogy. Under loupe, aggregates of intense yellow color are observed, with reflections of what could be crystalline faces. This cadmium sulphide is a product of the alteration of rich Cd sphalerite. It is impossible to get specimens today.


Size: 4.5 x 3.2 x 2.8 cm.
Found in ±1985.
