Fluorite - Beveled edge cubes with Phantoms.
stock # 17.1 -275
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
3.2 x 3 x 1.9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $440
new june 17

A killer small miniature (toenail) with rich deep purple color and zoning in gem clear crystals. In fine condition as seen, this has the slightly beveled edges on the cubes that is distinctive of the Llamas Quarry and many Asturias area mines. This locale has never been very productive in terms of quantity but the quality - as in this specimen are world class.
Fluorite- gem clear crystal on Calcite
stock #17.1-219
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
4.5 x 2.2 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $380
new june 17

From the 2016 find at the Llamas quarry this is a super clear and glassy Fluorite with sharp edge beveling on all sides. Nicely perched on the Calcite matrix with a few extra tiny Fluorites for extra sparkle. Impressive perfection even under 20x magnification there are no nicks or imperfections. In some photos what appears as an internal cloud or veil is only external microscopic cubic indents on one face. The interior is certainly colorless and absolutely clear. This small location only produces a few nice pieces in any year and rarly this level of perfection.
Fluorite with Barite
stock #7.AE-087
Berbes, Ribadesella
Asturias, Spain
9.4 X 5.6 X 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
Spring 2017

Clear and very sharp zoned violet Fluorite cubes mixed with Barite blades. Classic Berbes type specimen in excellent condition. The bright luster and overall arrangement make this a much better than typical specimen. Better in person.
Fluorite (tabular) w. Quartz & Calcite
stock #16.1-036A
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
3 x 3 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $290
Winter 2016-17

The recent finds at Cantera Llamas have provided some sweet, well formed tabular Fluorites that can be gem clear. This one is in super fine condition, bright, glass clear and colorless. Smaller Fluorites and Quartz crystals form part of the matrix, the rest is a pale yellow scalenohedral Calcite. The main crystal shows also the "Asturias" style right angle inset with edge bevels all around. Choice.
Fluorite w. Quartz
stock #AX-32-233
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
2.5 x 2.3 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $130
Fall 2015

Simple cube of transparent Fluorite with modified edges with a small matrix of Quartz. Pale color and some internal clouding but as seen a nice example of the find at Llamas Quarry in quite good condition. Small natural contacts as seen and a cleave on the bottom where removed that is not seen on display. Better in person too.
Fluorite on Quartz
stock #AX-32-232
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
3.8 x 3.3 x 1.6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $140
Fall 2015

Small but elegant miniature with a "cityscape" form with gem clear small Fluorite cubes perched on the "towers". This could be trimmed to thumbnail if desired but I like it as is. In exceptional undamaged condition and quite different from most specimens from this small but outstanding locale.
Fluorite
stock #AX-32-235
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
1.9 x 1.1 x 1.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $140
Fall 2015

A small but choice single cube with a tiny bit of matrix from this very interesting location. Excellent clarity (better in person) and sharply beveled corners are features of these Fluorites. This is in fine condition damage-wise, small contacts are noted on the backside.
Gypsum (var. Selenite) prismatic gemmy crystal
stock #AX-12-565
Fuentes de Ebra, Zaragoza
Aragon, Spain
3.3 x 2 x 1.8 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $125
pre Tucson 2015 update

Glass clear and textbook sharp this is a small but super clean specimen from the alabaster quarries of Fuentes de Ebra. These are very fragile and so there are few that survive in such perfect condition. Since these are so distinctive they are found in many top collection but rarely are for sale in this quality. Unlike many this is not a twined crystal but a single prism that is optically clear.
