Baryte with Dolomite
 

JFD118AO4: This Baryte is the proof that it can be a ticklish matter to ensure that this or that piece is from this or that locality. This appears to not be from the Emilio mine, neither for its habit nor for its size and definition. Fortunately, the Dolomite that accompanies it does resemble those from the Emilio mine and, furthermore, I am certain that it is from there because I bought it from the legendary Portuguese shovel operator Cándido, who was the one who had the best pieces in the initial years of exploitation of that mine.
Emilio Mine, Obdulia vein, Caravia mining area, La Rubiera, Loroñe, Colunga, Comarca de la Sidra, Asturias, Principality of Asturias  Spain (2002)

Fluorite
 

JFD119AO4: A curiosity very different from other Berbes pieces. The cube is a floater, has good color and prominent growth zoning. On the back, the inner zoned cube is very clear and around it grows a network of dissolution figures that give it an atypical appearance. It was sold to me simply as 'Berbes' and thus we don't know where exactly in that mining district this rarity came from.
Berbes mining area, Berbes, Ribadesella, Comarca Oriente, Asturias, Principality of Asturias  Spain (1995)

JFD121AO4: One hell of a piece! Many Chalcopyrite crystals with a curious morphology, good luster and color and as a floater in which the Arsenopyrite culminates the piece in its upper part and the omnipresent Siderite covers a little of everything, but without invading the rest of the species.
Not only are apatites and ferberites world-class in Panasqueira, but sometimes other species are as well.

Skutterudite with Calcite
 

JFD123AO4: Good crystal size, good luster, and Calcite - which proves that the piece has not been acid-cleaned. I understand that this is why, despite having been found in 1994, it is still impeccable, with no signs of aging.
Bou Azzer Mine, Bou Azzer mining district, Ouarzazate Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (±1990)
