RM2002   Gahnite

Victoria mine, Val d'Aran, Arres, Lleida, Catalunya, Spain

In this old specimen from Manchion collection we can observe several octahedral gahnite crystals with defined faces and edges, a uniform deep blue color and accompanied by yellowish sphalerite. Such samples are very difficult to obtain and only from time to time appears a classic like this, only from old collections.


Size: 6.5 x 5.3 x 2.8 cm.
Main crystal: 5 mm.

Col. Manchion.


 

RM905   Baryte

Victoria mine, Cabezo de San Ginés, Cartagena-La Unión, Murcia, Spain

On a thin limonite matrix we can enjoy two aggregates and aesthetic baryte rosettes formed by lenticular crystals are arranged. Both aggregates are complete, but one of them shows an unusual perfection. It comes from a mine known for its ocher tone barytes,but this shape is not very common in this mine.


Size: 9.0 x 7.0 x 3.5 cm.
Main crystal: 23 x 20 mm. (roseta)

 

RM897   Baryte

Victoria mine, Cabezo de San Ginés, Cartagena-La Unión, Murcia, Spain

Specimen with a good size formed by a rich group of tabular baryte crystals, very sharp and brilliant, showing pseudohexagonal forms and with a uniform ocher color. A mine poorly represented in collections.


Size: 9.8 x 8.3 x 6.5 cm.
Main crystal: 18 x 17 mm.

 

RM1792   Baryte

Victoria mine, Cabezo de San Ginés, Cartagena-La Unión, Murcia, Spain

These specimens of orange-colored baryte are a classic of the mineralogy of the La Unión-Cartagena area. This piece stands out for the intense brightness and a marked color zoning, which shows banded zoning on the tabular crystals, those form aesthetic rosettes. Very elegant specimen.


Size: 4.5 x 4.3 x 3.3 cm.
