The Jordi Fabre Collection (duplicates)

September 2021 marks 50 years since I started selling minerals and 25 since I started doing it on the internet. Those who are curious to know how these 25/50 years have been will find more information here

50 years dedicated to the same activity is a lot of years, and I believe that the time has come to start doing things in a different way. Although I plan to continue offering minerals until my health or my age no longer allows, little by little I will decrease the intensity and from 2022 I will stop attending the vast majority of the shows at which I used to exhibit or just visit. I will no longer go to Tucson from 2022 and depending on how things go I will go (or not) to other shows.
As I am lucky to have gathered a very large and quality stock during all these years of activity, and as in recent times I have been intensely buying a lot of varied material, between the 'classic' stuff and what I have bought in recent years I think there is enough to offer competitive pieces online for a long time. However, considering how demanding the collecting world has become, there could come a time in the future in which a decrease in the quality of what we were offering would begin to be noticed, and that is why I want to do something a bit different: put part of my personal collection up for sale.

My collection is quite extensive (more than 3000 specimens) and although it is limited to 4 countries: Spain, Morocco, Portugal and France, I think it has a good number of competitive pieces. Lately I find that I have neither the time nor the capacity to properly process everything that I was adding to the collection. In view of this fact, I've decided to change the way I was doing things and have come up with this solution:
What better way than to share the many pieces that are not part of the 'hard core' of my collection with the family of friends and clients that has grown around this page over the years? By putting them up for sale I will no longer have them physically but they will have a new digital entity in which their photo, description and all their data will be shared online. I think it is a useful way to reclassify, with specific numbering, a good part of the specimens in my collection so that others can have them, and they will continue to be well referenced online for some time (which I will try to extend as long as possible)
The idea is to use these duplicates to create something like an online reference which, if any institution is interested in future, can be transferred in digital format so that it can be saved as one more document / file added to those they usually handle. The institutions will not be bothered with more work due to the need for physical conservation or extra space requirements.

In short, from now on and as long as my strength allows, I am going to use this sales page to build a digital file of a significant number of pieces from my collection that I hope will be useful. Their sale, along with the sales of the other pieces from my stock, will generate some funds that I hope will allow me to continue living with dignity and to continue maintaining, thanks to those funds, this website and FMF, both very active and fulfilling their function, that of spreading mineralogy.

To avoid any confusion: I will not sell these duplicates from my collection other than through this page, I will continue to preserve the 'hard core' of my collection, in which the most valuable and unique pieces will stay. The only exceptions which I will refrain from selling will be the minerals from Catalonia which, although they are not of great value, I will retain for sentimental reasons.

Welcome to the duplicates page of Jordi Fabre's collection, I hope you like them as much as I liked them when I had them. In fact, I always wanted to have a sales page for my own minerals at Fabre Minerals!

JFD02AN5: What years those were! Extraordinary pyromorphites that became world famous were found during the years 1997 and 1998 in the San Andrés Mine. But not everything ended there, since in 1999 a good piece like this one was still recovered, with a very elegant structure and good crystal quality.

JFD04AN5: From a very classic locality to which generations of collectors, especially from Aragon and Catalonia, have gone to look for minerals. Lluís Daunis, as always the smartest in the class, found this elegant piece and had it in his collection. It exhibits a second generation of 'classic' radial Scolecite that has grown over a first generation of Scolecite that was less radial.

JFD07AN5: Reocín Marcasite is dangerous because it tends to decompose relatively easily, especially in humid climates like Barcelona's. For some reason this piece has remained 'healthy' despite the many years it has resided in my collection. I do not know whether the Dolomite, pinker than usual in Reocín, has anything to do with its good preservation, but the fact is that here it is, resisting the passage of time quite nicely.

JFD11AN5: According to what I was told, between 1998 and 1999 a very large vug was found in the granite quarries of the Sierra de Madrid, so large that you could walk inside it. This enormous cavity produced many specimens, and despite the fact that many were destroyed by the quarrying work, Madrid fans were able to collect a large number of quality specimens like this one, for which we should highlight the good number of peculiar Calcite crystals, very characteristic of this vug, as well as the Clinozoisite-Epidote Series mineral that adorns many specimens from that vug.

JFD13AN5: Alain Martaud spent quite a long time in La Unión digging for minerals and took advantage of the time to obtain a good number of specimens from the area. All 'special', such as this Smithsonite and Galena pseudomorph that has replaced an older Pyrrhotite crystal, which in addition to being interesting (mineralogically speaking) has the great advantage that it makes the specimen stable, so it will not suffer the alteration that so often happens to pyrrhotites. In addition, a small group of the ubiquitous barytes from that area embellish the specimen.

JFD14AN5: Vizille is a classic French mineral locality where many alpine quartzes and very good (and very large) siderites have been found. I kept this piece because I really liked that Quartz, alone and tall in the middle of the piece, and because the specimen was a floater, with a single large Siderite crystal in which are the Quartz and a second generation of siderites, with smaller and lighter colored crystals.

JFD17AN5: This Plattnerite comes from the great find made in the Preguiça Mine by a group of people from Huelva in the years 2005-2006. Very graceful, with the contrast between the very lustrous small crystals of Plattnerite and the white Calcite.
When I bought them I had them analyzed by Joan Viñals and the analysis confirmed that they were indeed plattnerites.

JFD18AN5: I have always been very fond of Saint-Salvy pyromorphites. They are one of my weaknesses in French mineralogy. They are very curious, labyrinthine, with all the little crystals clustering into tangles or hedgehogs. Due to their delicacy it is very difficult to find any that do not have any damaged crystals, which is why I liked this piece and kept it, for its perfection.
Saint-Salvy Mine, Saint-Salvy-de-la-Balme, Tarn, Occitanie  France (±1980)

Gold (variety electrum) with Erythrite
 

JFD19AN5: A great novelty of the year 2017. On the slopes of Jebel Taghouni, next to the Taghouni mine, these Gold crystals were found which, inevitably, tend to be small but are interesting for their association with Erythrite, a very, very unusual association. In this piece the Gold is not sensational, but there are quite a few crystals of it and, above all, a lot of Erythrite, so the contrast of that rare association is clear.
