About These Agoudal Mine Specimens

The Agoudal Mine has been a famous source of many excellent mineral specimens for years. In particular, it has been known for beautiful cobaltoan calcite. The locality has included underground and surface workings. I understand from Tomasz Prazkier that all workings at the Agoudal Mine have now ceased. This is sad news for mineral collectors, as the Agoudal Mine has produced some of the finest cobaltoan calcites and roselites ever found anywhere.
