Big specimen with blue massive aerinite on matrix; dimensions: 210x140x60 mm. Weight: 2,0 kilogrammes.
Aerinite is a rare mineral. It has been found in several deposits in the Spanish Pyrenees of Huesca and Lleida, as in Estopiñán del Castillo, Camporrells, Juseu and Tartareu.
Its name comes from a Greek root "aerinos," meaning "atmosphere" or "sky blue". In 1882, the geologist Luis Mariano Vidal found the mineral in situ in Caserras del Castillo, a locality that currently belongs to the municipality of Estopiñán del Castillo, in Huesca.
