JFD87AO1: The color and luster are amazing. Although not on matrix, due to the transparency, intensity of color and good definition of the crystal, I have seen few of such quality. A very old piece in my collection, I bought it from the historic Andrés Puente in 1979. Andrés was the one who had the best Áliva pieces at that time.
Las Mánforas Mine, Áliva mining area, Camaleño, Comarca Liébana, Cantabria  Spain (1979)

Specimen size: 9.6 × 4.4 × 3.4 cm = 3.78” × 1.73” × 1.34”

Main crystal size: 5.1 × 3.8 cm = 2.01” × 1.50”

Fluorite

Recorded under neon light
Fluorite
 

JFD89AO1: The Josefa-Veneros vein yielded many fluorites and although they typically exhibit large cubes with color zoning on the edges of the crystals, rough, with dodecahedral faces and predominantly violet colors, there can be notable variations within this pattern, as in this case, in which the color is much bluer than usual, as well as its high transparency that makes it different from the usual Josefa-Veneros standards but no less beautiful for that.
Josefa-Veneros vein, 75 level, La Collada mining area, Coroña de Arriba-La Collada, Siero, Comarca Oviedo, Asturias, Principality of Asturias  Spain (±1970-75)

Specimen size: 8 × 5.6 × 2.5 cm = 3.15” × 2.20” × 0.98”

JFD94AO1: For many years the best Erythrite in my collection. Although the color of the Erythrite is so attractive, it has never been easy to obtain attractive collection specimens since it is difficult to find pieces with well-developed crystals and well-arranged on the matrix. It has accompanied me since 1988 when I got it, and I hope it finds a place where its new owner appreciates it as much as I have until now.
Bou Azzer Mine, Bou Azzer mining district, Ouarzazate Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (±1992)
