Fluorite with Baryte and Quartz
 

MT56AI7: A novelty at Munich 2018. Group of very sharp cubic Fluorite crystals between transparent and translucent, extraordinarily bright with a very vivid golden yellow color and partially coated by small Quartz crystals with groups of white Baryte crystals. By their color, size and luster they are probably among the best French Fluorites.
