Canteras de arcillas, La Cañada de Verich, provincia Teruel, Aragón, España


Refractory clay quarries located near the village of Cañada de Verich. The opencuts, currently in operation, belong to the formation Utrillas. We can find groups of gypsum and pyrite and marcasite in carbonaceous clay and lignite. The calcite crystals appear in huge geode up to 40 cm in the limestones in the upper levels.
