Review:

Coinciding with the renovation of the mineral collection of the Principality of Asturias, the Geominero Museum has been carried out over the first three quarters of 2013, this third installment in the series: “Colección de minerales de las Comunidades y Ciudades Autónomas”. This collection is kept in the windows 132 and 133 on the second floor of the Mining Museum and comprises a total of 758 copies, of which 154 are exposed today. In this booklet is shown the rich mineralogical diversity of Asturias, with special attention to mineral classics of this community. So, fluorite, barite, calcite, quartz and andalusite, are some of the outstanding examples of mineral species high interest not only for their aesthetic value but also for the historical value of the sites of origin. Thus, fluorine mines the mining districts of Caravia - Berbes, Villabona- Arlós and La Collada, andalusite outcrops in your quiastolita variety of contact metamorphic aureole of the pluton Boal, gold mines and Field Salave, among others, are some of the sites that are well represented in this new release. But also, when updating the collection, have not neglected the mineral discoveries of recent decades. Brañes quartz, hematite and piromorfita Latores Meredo are three examples of new additions in the windows. With the updating and revision of this collection, as well as incorporating classic specimens of both sites, as new discovery, this collection of the Geominero Museum becomes a model of the mineralogy of the Principality of Asturias.
