Area:
1,080 km2


Small caribbean island of about 1080 km² (45 miles North-South to 19 miles East-West). Minerals come from remain of volcanic activities (dacite, andesite, basalt, tuff...) and hydrothermal veins with zeolite, quartz, calcite and baryte. Samples are most of the time with a dull aspect due to strong tropical weathering.
