JFD33AN7: A classic mine for Spanish mineralogy from which, however, very few specimens were saved, probably due to the method of exploitation, and perhaps because Pyrite and Galena are very abundant minerals in Spain and so that is why little attention was paid to specimens from this particular mine, although some specimens from this deposit are at least as good as those from other more famous Spanish localities.
This piece came into my hands thanks to the kindness of Conchita Ferrando, widow of Jorge Darlington Rivera, a geologist at the mine who had the wisdom to make a small collection of the specimens he obtained while working there. Without him and Conchita, it is more than likely that references of the mining heritage of the Alcudia Valley would have been lost.
