Cerussite after Anglesite and Goethite
 

JFD212AP6: Anglesites pseudomorphed by Cerussite and covered with Goethite are a Spanish classic from the San Valentín Quarry, but this particular piece is different, both for not being covered with Goethite and for its intense yellow color and the dissolution figures in some crystals.
Curiously I bought it in France. It was from Alain Martaud's collection (with a label) and he must have bought it from Maurice Boudon, a French engineer who worked at La Unión.

JFD213AP6: The Jaimina Mine was not always a mine. It began as a quarry and from those initial years comes this piece that Jaime Chacón found in 1978 on the working face, as witnessed by his handwritten label. The piece is slightly different from the mine ones, with a more intense color and a hexahedral pattern on the faces that is richer than usual in the Jaimina Mine specimens, strongly reminiscent of its predecessors, the San Lino Mine fluorites, albeit with better quality. A historical piece, precursor of what later became the splendor of the Emilio-Jaimina mining system.

JFD216AP6: I have already said at other times that the 'basaristes' of Morocco had a prominent role in the development of the mineral trade that exists in that country. I acquired this piece in 1984 when Touissit was in its splendor, and I bought it from one of the basaristes in Asni, a town located about 1000 km away from Touissit! The small town of Asni would have had about 7,000 inhabitants at that time, and despite so few people there was already a large group of mineral vendors who, in their precarious 'basars', offered pieces from remote locations, sometimes as good as this one. If I hadn't experienced it myself, I would have a hard time believing it.
