Mineral Specimen #5501    Milarite, Quartz, Valencianite

Mina Valenciana, Guanajuato, Mun. de Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico

5.6 x 2.8 x 1.3 cm


This specimen is composed of sparkly, Quartz crystals which are clear to white in color, elongated white colored Valencianite crystals and yellow/green colored Milarite. Valencianite is a varietal name for K-Feldspar that at one time was considered a separate species for which this was the type location. Interestingly, on mindat, there is a paper from 2013 cited on the description for the location which makes the conclusion that Valencianite actually should be considered a separate species.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
