The mineral and mining museum, which was opened in 2006 in Agios Konstantinos (Kamariza), incorporates the Serpieri shaft as the outdoor part of the museum.

This mine and the Hilarion mine are co-type localities for natroglaucocerinite.

Coordinates given are those of the Serpieri shaft.

Note that most of the Serpieri mine workings are inaccessible nowadays.

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Jurassic
145 - 201.3 Ma



ID: 1381151
Jurassic intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Age: Jurassic (145 - 201.3 Ma)

Comments: Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.

Lithology: Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
