Fluorite (tabular) w. Quartz & Calcite
stock #B16.1-036A
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 #ALEC-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.

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 differnt from most specimens from this small but outstanding locale.
Fluorite
stock #ALEC-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 (v Selenite) prismatic gemmy crystal
stock #Alec-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.
Fluorite (modified cubes)
stock #7 JF-115
Mina la Viesca, La Collada
Asturias, Spain
10.6 X 6 CM (cabinet)
price: $300


Fine and damage free cabinet of rich violet fluorites showing several types of modifications. Overall this is an attractive and clean piece and the main crystals are all pristine. There are some neat structures where the cubes have stacked geometrically. A super value on a very good Spanish Fluorite likely found about 1960.
