RM1651   Fluorapatite

La Celia, Jumilla, Murcia, Spain

From a find in the area of La Celia mines. This crystal is very rich in faces, doubly terminated, gem quality, very brilliant and with an excellent transparence. It is accompanied by numerous other smaller crystals. This locality is located in La Celia volcano where we find remains of a volcanic neck (chimney) and streams from Pliocenic age (1.8-5 million years). These mines have a special geological interest, as they contains an exceptional locality for fluorapatite in the volcanic rock "jumillite". Jumillite is a volcanic rock of the lamproite group, a variety of phonolitic leucitite, consisting essentially of diopside and leucite and, to a lesser content, by olivine, alkali feldspar and phlogopite.


Size: 5.5 × 3.5 × 3 cm
Main crystal: 12 mm.

RM2053   Quartz var. Chalcedony with calcite and siderite

Tomasa Mine (Tomasa-San Valentín unit), La Unión-Cartagena, Murcia, Spain

This specimen shows an interesting group formed by a bluish, very bright botryodal chalcedony, which is partially covered by aggregates of calcite crystals, flattened, in axial growth, and with an excellent transparency and brightness. A worthy specimen of this near to disapeared quarry, close to the San Valentín quarry. A very aesthetic piece of this classic Murcia mining area.

RM1019   Hydrohetaerolite with calcite and hemimorphite

Precaución Mine, Cabezo de San Ginés, El Estrecho de San Ginés, Sierra Minera de Cartagena-L, Cartagena, Murcia, Spain

In the matrix of goethite we observe several cavities covered by small brilliant crystals, gray metallic luster; once analyzed results indicated to be hydrohetaerolite. We discuss whether it is hetaerolita, but analysis carried by Joan Viñals indicated the hydrated form. Under the SEM-EDS, tetragonal dipyramids are observed. It is accompanied by calcite crystals and hemimorphite (tabular crystals in book shape). SEM-EDS analysis will be sent to buyer.
