Pyrite with Calcite-Dolomite
 

JFD153AO7: Panasqueira pyrites are unmistakable. It is curious that such a common mineral can be assigned to one locality in such a recognizable way. Flattened cubes, rich in faces, with Calcite-Dolomite in many cases and that brass-like color, from ancient ore.
It is nice what they call the pyrites in Panasqueira when they have this type of tones or they are oxidized: 'ferruginadas'

Specimen size: 9.2 × 8.3 × 3.1 cm = 3.62” × 3.27” × 1.22”

Sphalerite with Fluorapatite and Muscovite

Sphalerite with Fluorapatite and Muscovite
 

JFD155AO7: Look out! A specimen like this is rare in Panasqueira. Sphalerite is not usually found there in good specimens, but moreover, when it is, it is almost always associated with other sulphides, which yields less luminous groups. In this case, the association with Fluorapatite, well crystallized and with a fibrous appearance, and Muscovite with a good color, results in a very unusual specimen, a real curiosity for those who specialise in this mine.
