Carat : I'm a diamond in the rough even for carving.

Welcome from South Dakota.

I spent many happy days exploring the streets of Sevilla.  How I wish I could do it all over again.

Welcome Albertto.  Your English is fine and completely understandable. I'll second the Adalusite, on matrix and gem quality.

Hello friends, thank you very much for your kind welcome .
Andalucia really not andalusite gemstones are extracted. First minerals were identified in a nearby region called Extremadura.
Most andalusite ore have been found in my country are not gem quality .
Curiously, in the north of the country , in Santiago de Compostela , some units of the " lapis crucifer " or stone cross, which is extracted andalusite + quiastolita .
In Spain , the only deposits of gemstones are rose quartz, sphalerites of the best quality but mine already closed its danger, and a gem called jet "azabache", a type of fossilized coal, world class .
I'm not blessed with your gems variety of countries.

Regards

Hi Ranger.
Indeed , that is the stone " lapis crucifer " You have copies of good quality, with very well-defined cross.
Formerly they used to carry the pilgrims that made the road to Santiago , as an amulet, by the way of the cross.
