Spinel, Clinohumite in Marble from Sierra de Mijas, Malaga, Spain.

Spinel and Clinohumite micro crystals on a marble matrix.

From Sierra de Mijas, Málaga, Andalusia, Spain.


It is a difficult material to find because it appears in scattered outcrops throughout Sierra de Mijas, Mijas, Málaga, Andalusia, Spain, so you have to walk a lot to find areas that have not already been hunted by one of the many local collectors and merchants.
