Pegmatita Teso de la Calera, Pinilla de Fermoselle, Villar del Buey, Zamora, Castilla y León, España
A highly fractionated, Li-F-Be-B-P-bearing granite pegmatite in calc-alkaline granite and hornfels.
Appears as a cupola over a PF leucogranite, displaying a non-symmetrical internal zonation with a complete sequence from a barren pegmatitic facies near the granite, to a highly evolved zone in the uppermost part of the body.
Al-rich micas show a continuous evolution from muscovitic to lepidolitic compositions from the leucogranite to the most evolved zone. Fe-rich micas range from Fe-biotite in the leucogranite and in the least evolved pegmatite zones, to an intermediate composition between zinnwaldite and trilithionite in the most evolved pegmatitic facies (Roda-Robles et al., 2006).
The pegmatite belongs to the Arribes del Duero Natural Park, so collecting activities are restricted.
