Calcite with Chalcophanite inclusions
 

NR14AM1: Druse of complex Calcite crystals that are very rich in faces, clearly dominated by scalenohedron faces and rhombohedron terminations, shinier and 'cleaner' than usual in this type of specimen. The crystals are translucent and brownish gray due to the inclusions of Chalcophanite, which also forms the matrix.
Herculano Mine, El Puntal, Campos de Golf, Atamaría, Cartagena, Comarca Campo de Cartagena, Murcia, Region of Murcia  Spain

Specimen size: 8.4 × 6.2 ×  5 cm = 3.31” × 2.44” × 1.97”

Main crystal size: 2 × 1.2 cm = 0.79” × 0.47”

Baryte
 

NC96AM1: Druse of fine lamellar Baryte crystals that form “books”, with very well defined faces and edges, with good luster and a yellow-brown color, on a limonite matrix. The specimen, from a mine in which collectable Baryte is very scarce, is of excellent quality for the locality.
Julia Mine, Portmán, La Unión, Comarca Campo de Cartagena, Murcia, Region of Murcia  Spain (2020)

Specimen size: 13.3 × 9.8 × 3.3 cm = 5.24” × 3.86” × 1.30”

EK91AM1: Druse of lamellar Baryte crystals with very sharp crystal forms and polycrystalline growths, translucent, lustrous and with a uniform sky-blue color, in a matrix composed of a geometric lattice of white Quartz microcrystals. This is from a find that was of extraordinary quality, from a mine that has produced very few specimens.
San Simón Mine, La Parreta, Alumbres, Cartagena, Comarca Campo de Cartagena, Murcia, Region of Murcia  Spain (2020)

Specimen size: 19.6 × 12.8 × 7 cm = 7.72” × 5.04” × 2.76”

Main crystal size: 2 × 1 cm = 0.79” × 0.39”

Minor fluorescence long & short UV

TM89AM1: Group of Pyromorphite crystals with sharp faces and edges, with parallel growths and hopper terminations, with good luster and a very vivid apple-green color. On matrix, with Baryte.
San Andrés Mine, Espiel, Comarca Valle del Guadiato, Córdoba, Andalusia  Spain

Specimen size: 5.5 × 5.2 × 2.9 cm = 2.17” × 2.05” × 1.14”

Antimony with Quartz
 

NP6AM1: Very sharp and shiny crystalline growths and cleavages of Antimony on a massive Quartz matrix. A Spanish classic, from a locality from which it is currently extremely difficult to get specimens.
La Viñuela reservoir, La Viñuela, Comarca La Axarquía, Málaga, Andalusia  Spain (1987)

Specimen size: 3.3 × 2.9 × 1.6 cm = 1.30” × 1.14” × 0.63”

NE26AM1: Delicate and very aerial growth of two generations of Calcite crystals, one of them as white crystals with the crystal forms of a very acute scalenohedron, translucent and with a pearly luster, and a second generation whose crystals have curved terminations and a yellowish color. Such quality specimens are rare from this locality.
Can Palomeres Mines, Malgrat de Mar, Comarca Maresme, Barcelona, Catalonia  Spain (2017)

Specimen size: 8.8 × 6.7 × 6.1 cm = 3.46” × 2.64” × 2.40”
