Description: Recent analysis (XRD) have confirmed again the presence of ferropargasite in this locality (green sprays as seen in the pictures). It must be said that there is no a complete certainty because with complex amphiboles like these further analysis would be neccessary (Polarised-light microscopy and EPMA). Analysis made by Juan Miguel Jiménez (see http://www.foro-minerales.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=77451)
