Siderite ps. Calcite, Quartz, Pyrite, Galena
Mine, Oasului Mtns, near Satu Mare, Marmures Co., Romania
7.5x 5.0x 2.8 cm
interesting specimen of siderite psudomorphs after calcite, on a
matrix shared by pyrite and quartz, and with galena on the reverse.
I first started collecting, Romanian minerals were as plentiful as
the comparable Peruvian material today. This days, many of the
Romanian mines are closed, and the material is not as common.
