JFD177AP1: Many years ago, when specimens from the quarries of the Sierra Norte de Madrid began to be seen (almost always referred to under the generic name of 'Los Gallegos') this quality of specimen still attracted attention. Later, those quarries experienced a splendor that we could hardly imagine, and so this piece now remains as a historical relic of the early days.
Miraculously, I was able to find out that it came specifically from the Navazales II Quarry, rather than having only the generic area name of 'Los Gallegos'
Navazales II Quarries, La Cabrera pluton, Valdemanco - Bustarviejo - Cabanillas de la Sierra - Navalafuente, Comarca Sierra Norte de Madrid, Community of Madrid  Spain (1998)

JFD178AP1: The difference between pieces from the Emilio Mine and the Jaimina Mine is very subtle. But we can tell that this piece came from the Emilio because when I bought it, Jaimina hadn't started working yet, but if it weren't for that, and for the general 'clarity' of the piece, doubt could remain, especially because of those hexaoctahedral Fluorite cubes.

JFD179AP1: Sorbas has been declared a protected natural area, but I collected this piece 13 years before that, in 1976. I still remember the beauty of the place and the ease with which it was possible to get specimens like this, with reddish Gypsum crystals colored by the red clays so characteristic of that place.

JFD180AP1: One hell of a piece (for this deposit anyway). Chalcopyrite is not exactly the most famous species from the Troya mine, but this specimen, found in the first years of exploitation, shows good sharp crystals, displaying a nice contrast with the Dolomite and the Siderite that are typical there.
Of the best possible quality for this locality.
