RM851   Goethite with siderite

Mont-Roc Mine, Villefranche d'Albigeois, Tarn, Midi-Pyrénées, France

Botryoidal aggregates formed by goethite microcrystals, with a delicate velvety appearance with deep brown to black color zoning. In section we can observe the radial arrangement of goethite crystals. The matrix is a mixture of goethite with some siderite rhombohedrons. These specimens are from a find in the Mont-Roc mine, that is known for the French mineralogy for its brilliant goethites and fluorite.
