RM2009   Vesuvianite

Can Montsant mines, Hortsavinyà, Tordera, Maresme, Catalunya, Spain

These mines are located in the heart of Massís del Montnegre, in Catalunya, and it is a classic for mineral collectors. The "vesuvianas" are found mainly in the outer zone of the mines. In this old specimen we can enjoy a radial aggregate of vesuvianite crystals, of good size and with the beige-greenish color that characterizes them in this locality. In a small vug we can see greenish transparent and well formed crystals of the species.

Size: 9 x 7 x 4 cm.
