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!

JFD21AN6: Another proof of Lluís Daunis's good work as a field collector. This time with a specimen from the Sierra de Madrid with very clean and 'fresh' Orthoclase crystals and with Quartz crystals (smoky variety), well separated and quite perpendicular to the Orthoclase crystal plate. It should be noted that I have it listed as Orthoclase and not Microcline as per personal communication from the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain, in Madrid.

Azurite with Fluorite and Calcite
 

JFD22AN6: When azurites first appeared in the Llamas quarry in 2018, I got a very large batch of specimens and, from the whole lot, I chose this one because of the good size of the crystals, because they form beautiful rosettes, because they are very perfect, and because they bear a special “signature”, namely a colorless and totally transparent Fluorite crystal which appears between the two rosettes, very characteristic of the deposit.

JFD23AN6: Although later more sphalerites with Fluorite were found in the La Viesca mine, when the first ones were found they caused much excitement among mineral collectors in Spain due to their novelty. I remember that they were very sought after and that in the end I was able to get one thanks to the deeply missed José Ramón García. Some time later, more pieces of Sphalerite with Fluorite came out, some even with relatively large crystals, although perhaps not as light in color as these first ones.

JFD24AN6: These pieces of blue Fluorite with yellow Baryte crystals and Calcite were found in the Moscona mine on Christmas Eve 1999, at a depth of 50 meters and in an area called 'The Telegraph' because it was close to the security apparatus for calls to the outside.
It was a small pocket, not many pieces came out, and this was the one that I kept because of the good combination of Fluorite and Baryte and because of the ‘life’ (good appearance and intensity) that the piece has.

JFD25AN6: Totally different from what is normally expected from the Josefa-Veneros vein, this piece surprised me when I got it, but since it was from Dr. Anton Forster, a mining engineer and collaborator of Dr. Maucher at the University of Munich, that confirmed to me that it was really from there. Dr. Forster was head of geology at La Collada when the famous specimens from the Josefa-Veneros vein were being found. He only worked there during that period and, since the piece indeed has all the appearance of being from the La Collada area and not from La Viesca, after checking it with José Ramón García we came to the conclusion that, although unusual, it must indeed be from Josefa-Veneros. In any case, I was very happy with it …

JFD26AN6: Of course it has a 'suspicious' aspect, so when I bought it the first thing I did was leave it in acetone for more than 24 hours and, since it came out the same, without anything detached, I studied it carefully under the binocular and was able to verify that there was nothing wrong with it.
The large (for the locality) crystals, unusual color and such an aerial presentation on its Dolomite matrix made me fall in love with it, and so... Into the collection!

JFD27AN6: An exciting novelty when they were first found. Many different source localities were given initially until we finally found out precisely which mine they came from. They are not spectacular, but nice, with a good green color (sometimes with shades of yellow) and sharp crystals. There was a lot of talk about them because, curiously, Morocco, a country so rich in secondary lead minerals, to date has very few localities for Pyromorphite.

Djurleite-Chalcocite intergrowth
 

JFD28AN6: This one hurts… I like it very much, both for the perfection and definition of the crystals, as well as for their very 'fresh' and natural patina and the fact that it is on matrix. The vast majority of these djurleites are enclosed in Calcite and inevitably have to be acid-etched out, and this, for some reason, has the appearance that we all imagine for a sulphide: not too gray and not too black.
I saw extraordinary pieces from that find that I still keep in my memory, but even so this piece is, for its size, one of my favorites of all the ones I got to see.

JFD29AN6: It's been a long time since these unique prehnites were seen for the first time, from a remote locality in the deep South of Morocco. Due to the difficulties caused by being close to the border, the work was abandoned and, although pieces from this locality reappear sporadically due to individual adventures, it has never become a classic Moroccan locality despite the fact that it could easily qualify due to the richness of what is apparently there.
