Fluorite from Spain

There were several dealers presenting finds of new as well as classic locality fluorite specimens from Spain.    The first group is of a new find from the Moscona Mine.  This mine has produced numerous examples of yellow and golden fluorite.  This past year a unique pocket was encountered that produced violet colored fluorite.  True to the Moscona Mine, these specimens have a yellow center but the outer 3-4 mm is all violet.   Violet fluorite is not rare in the world but is considered very rare from this locality.   I was quite happy to obtain several of these at the show.

La Cabana

Extraordinary colorless and water clear crystals of fluorite are found on this 5 x 3.5 cm specimen.  The crystals display near perfection in their development and rival some of the best optical grade fluorite I have ever seen from Dal'Negorsk.  This specimen was part of a unique find made in March 1993 from a single boulder found in a ravine about 2 meters across.  No other locations are known for this high quality fluorite.  All of the crystals display the tetrahexahedral crystal faces.  The largest crystal is 0.8 cm across.
