New assorted mineral specimens from the Panasqueira mine, 2017 May

 

We have posted a new selection of fine minerals coming directly from the world famous Panasqueira mine in Portugal. Although the mine is hardly working for months owing to the low prices of the metals, we picked up again very fine minerals. We present in this new edition a selection on these new finds as well as a couple of high quality pieces coming from a former collection and a few specimens from our inventory, all of them at affordable and reasonable prices. As usual we have published, beside the photos, a video of each piece taken in natural light conditions in order to check out perfectly the features of each sample. The photos have been taken using a source of intense white lights while the videos were taken beneath natural daylight.

 

Please, don't hesitate to contact us for any inquiry or question.

Two transparent to translucent Fluorapatite crystals in parallel growth and partially coated by Siderite crystals on the bottom of the piece. Very nice olive-green color with good luster. Flattened prismatic crystals with very well defined faces and edges. The crystals are terminated by pyramidal faces. Accompanied by crystals of Siderite. Great aesthetic with nice display viewes. The condition is fair, only minor damage on the edge of the rear crystal that doesn't detract from the aesthetic of this specimen. Nevertheless this out of the view when it is correctly displayed. Floater mineral specimen. Please, watch video in HD.
