Augite with Zeolites
 

JFD30AN7: Doubly terminated Augite crystal of good size for the locality and on matrix, which is not so common in specimens of this species. It also has small crystals of some associated Zeolite (possibly Phillipsite). It comes from a well-known, although somewhat forgotten locality, located very close to an urban area. Antonino Bueno Yanes found them in July 2014 and this is how this Spanish classic 'came to light' again.

Pyrite

Pyrite
 

JFD31AN7: Navajún and its Ampliación a Victoria mine are known worldwide for their cubic pyrites that are among the best in the world, but in addition to the cubes there are also pyrites like this one, with octahedral faces. They appear in the deposit at only a single spot where no work has been done for many years. Maybe one day work will be done in that section again and more of these characteristic cubo-octahedral pyrites will appear, but for now...
I bought it of course from Pedro Ansorena in 2002. Pedro is the owner of the mine and the person who knows it best.

JFD32AN7: The habit of this Pyrite is known in Spain as a 'matchbox'. Some faces of the cube are wider and more elongated than the others, giving this 'rectangular' appearance. They are rare in Navajún and when they do appear they are highly desired, especially if they are in matrix, as in this case.

Goethite with Quartz
 

JFD34AN7: Beautiful iridescent goethites appear not only in Huelva, but also in Murcia, in the famous San Valentín Quarry. They can be very beautiful, like this one that covers Quartz crystals and in which an elongated botryoidal group seems to form a narrow bridge over the Goethite itself. From Alain Martaud's collection, I liked it when I bought it from him because it was so elegant and original.

JFD35AN7: The La Lapilla goethites have an 'architectural' point and, although their color is sometimes not as intense as that of the Tharsis goethites, their structure and the design of their formations have always attracted me. I got it (of course) from Fermín Clemente, a great field collector in the Huelva area.

Fluorite on epimorphic Quartz after Calcite

Recorded under LED light
Fluorite on epimorphic Quartz after Calcite
 

JFD37AN7: Geoda de las Monjas ('The Nun's pocket') is an already mythical name in the compendium of fluorite finds from La Viesca. One of the characteristics of this vug, apart from its quality and the enormous sizes of the best pieces, was what gave it its name ('Nuns' because of the shape of their bonnets) due to the relative presence of Quartz epimorphs after scalenohedral Calcite crystals that had disappeared, leaving only the shell of Quartz that used to coat them.
The most desirable epimorphs? Those that also had Fluorite crystals of good size on top of the epimorphs, such as in the case of this piece, which is what makes it such a high-quality specimen.

Quartz with Fluorapatite, Cassiterite and Siderite
 

JFD38AN7: Quartz is ubiquitous in Panasqueira and appears there in a great diversity of habits. In this floater, recrystallized at its base, what is attractive, in addition to its transparency and perfection, is the presence of a Cassiterite crystal in the center of the piece and the numerous inclusions of Fluorapatite crystals, a very rare inclusion due to the very different formation temperatures of Quartz and Fluorapatite. Completing this combo piece is the presence of Siderite on the back.
I bought it from Alberto Ledo in 2014. Alberto is part of the new generation of Portuguese dealers who go often to the mine and sometimes get great specimens from there.

EFM88AN7: A novelty in Tucson Virtual 2021. Unique fan growths, with three generations, the first being a larger crystal with a slightly smoky color visible on the back of the sample, a second, with crystals of good size and intense color, and a last phase, with smaller crystals, very sharp, translucent, with a very bright luster and an intense and uniform color. It should be noted that the color is not due to inclusions of iron oxides but is the intrinsic color of the quartz. Different from what has been seen so far from this locality.
