SPANISH FLUORITE


Fluorite
Fluorite. Fluorite.
 

TG96AJ5: Sharp cubic crystals on matrix, clear, very bright and colorless. The Fluorite from Gualba tends to be in small crystals and is currently rare.
Xauxa Quarry (Aymar Quarry), Turó de Xauxa / Sot de les Pedreres, Gualba, Comarca Vallès Oriental, Barcelona, Catalonia  Spain (1980)

Specimen size: 10.8 × 7.8 × 4.1 cm = 4.3” × 3.1” × 1.6”

Main crystal size: 0.3 × 0.3 cm = 0.1” × 0.1”

Fluorite with Baryte
 

NT96AJ5: Cubic Fluorite crystals slightly beveled by the dodecahedron. They are transparent, very bright and have a very intense violet color with a very well defined geometric zoning that is darker on the edges and in the centers of the crystals. They are on matrix and are partially coated by white laminar Baryte crystals. These Fluorites should be considered a rarity because they are from occasional finds.
