TPD70AN5: Veszelyite crystals isolated or in small groups, very sharp, of extraordinary quality for the species and very similar to the famous ones from the Black Pine mine but even more intense in color. They are translucent, lustrous and deep blue, and on a matrix with white Hemimorphite. Only a few specimens of this type were uncovered during the finds of the year 2021.

TPQ91AN5: Parallel aggregates of Quartz crystals (variety prase) with a very sharp dipyramidal habit and the absence of prism faces. They exhibit bright luster and an intense green color due to inclusions, probably Actinolite and/or Hedenbergite. In this specimen, the same Quartz coincides with a very different habit that could correspond to a first growth phase together with Calcite, which later disappeared, leaving the Quartz as parallel, flattened and almost lamellar polycrystalline forms following the spaces left by the Calcite.

ERJ92AN5: Group of Fluorite crystals, basically octahedral in habit but also with smooth cube faces along with the octahedral faces (and other crystallographic forms) incorporating very extensive and easily visible fine polycrystalline growths. The crystals are large, transparent, with very bright luster and an intense and uniform pink color, on a matrix of very sharp lamellar crystals of Muscovite. Exceptional.
