Afloramientos de Guainos Bajos (Autopista Adra-Motril), Adra, Almería, Andalucía, España


Extensive field of alpine-type veins in schist, discovered in roadcuts during construction of the Adra-Motril highway.
Although most of the first specimens were found at time of the works of the highway, close Guainos Bajos, still today can be found some samples in some places of this Adra neighborhood.
The minerals present are similar to those found in the nearby outcrops of La Alcazaba: http://www.mindat.org/loc-271017.html
