Auvergne; Rhône-Alpes


Quartz-barite-galena-carbonates vein in biotite-sillimanite anatectic gneisses.
Carbonates phases come in two stades : First siderite, ferrroan calcite associated with pyritospheres, chalcopyrite and tetrahedrite, then calcite and dolomite. Semseyite, plagionite and boulangerite are asssociated with dolomite.
South of Paulhac, right bank of Vendage brook, just after the bridge of Le Celier path.
