An ophite quarry in Carchelejo, Jaén, Spain produced good Prehnite, some of which are intensely green, with spherical forms, and often associated with brilliant Augite.
The quarry is now closed, so new specimens are unlikely to be found in the future.

NG12T9: This is a Spanish novelty because in the Los Amigos Mine Chrysocolla wasn't mentioned before. We should also mention that the appearance of this Chrysocolla is very attractive as it isn’t just a crust as usual but it has nice forms covering what seem to be crystals of Quartz and probably Chalcedony. These nice forms together with their great color, generate what is, in our opinion, the best Chrysocolla found in Spain and nearly as fine as the nicer ones from other countries.
As usual when we offer unusual things like this, we will send a copy of the analysis to the customer.

San Andrés Mine Pyromorphite

The small San Andrés Mine in Villaviciosa, Córdoba, produced, over the period 1997-1998, some really great Pyromorphite! The color is a fantastic apple green and their brilliance is typical of the specimens that in the past have made this mine famous. These are, without doubt, the best Pyromorphite found in Europe during the last few years, and they really compete well with the famous American Bunker Hill Pyromorphite, and with the new Chinese ones. The specimens were found in two different pockets. The first one was found in November 1997 and it was called 'Realces' pocket. The second (and last) one was found in November 1998. It was called the 'Geoda del Tunel' pocket. Unfortunately, after these two pockets the mine entrance was blocked by tons of rubble.

El Horcajo Pyromorphite

During the last century a mine at El Horcajo, Ciudad Real, produced great Pyromorphite with a very large variety of forms. Specimens from the locality are very well represented in major European Museums. Unfortunately little of this material is available and it is very difficult to get hold of specimen from this mine. We obtained a few small specimens from an old Spanish collection and we are able to offer them :
