New selection of nice Panasqueira specimens and excellent Vivianites from the Rosia Poieni mine, Romania

New mineral edition with a selection of very nice mineral specimens from the Panasqueira mines including some high quality Fluorites as well as other great combination specimens. We have also added a mineralogical novelty, the new Vivianites from the Rosia Poieni mine in Romania. The Rosia Poieni ore deposit represents the largest Cu-Au porphyry structure in the Metaliferi Mountains. The Vivianite crystals grow along thin fissures in silicified, dark-grey microdiorite rocks or refilling cleveage planes in hydrotermalized Cretaceous sedimentary rocks. The color, luster and transparency of the Vivianite crystals are incredible. One of the most relevant and the most important discoveries in Europe since decades.

 

As usual we have posted beside the photos of each specimen a video for a much better characterization and visualization of the piece. Please, don't hesitate to contact us for any inquiry or question.

 

Note: Photos taken using white light lamps and videos in conditions of natural light.
