Fluorite -gem clear on Quartz
stock #17.1-163
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
7.1 x 4.8 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $680


Incredibly transparent, clear cubes of Fluorite on a sparkling Quartz matrix. The details of the matrix are perfectly visible seen through the Fluorite. In excellent condition the cubes have typical small edge bevels and light violet color with a slight hint of zoning. The result is the Fluorite is nearly invisible from some angles. From a small but excellent pocket found in 2017, this is an especially fine example from this remarkable locality, and a great Fluorite from any place at all.
Fluorite with Quartz
stock #19.1-421
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
2.5 x 2.1 x 2.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $150


Pristine thumbnail of Fluorite cubes having clean beveled edges and a delicate purple hue. The cubes are fully transparent with a slight frosting on some faces which under strong magnification seems to be a complex recrystallization. In perfect condition damage wise, this is a nice example from this small but important locality that has been sporadically producing small numbers of specimens but sometimes of very fine quality. The matrix is perfectly visible through the crystals and the Fluorite is nicely perched at a nice display angle.
Fluorite-gem clear, flattened cube
stock #19.1-239
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
2.6 x 1.8 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $330
Spring 2019

Super clear, a transparent purple cube with flat proportions and edge bevels. Very attractive and lustrous, the condition is very fine, there are old contacts on some edges and faces as seen that have fully recrystallized and show fine stepped etching, there is no chipping or normal damage. A choice and richly colored single crystal fro the Llamas Quarry, this is an excellent very gemmy example.
Fluorite on Quartz
stock #AX-20-230
La Viesca Mine, Huergo, La Collada, Siero
Asturias, Spain
6.6 x 4.1 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
Late Summer 2018

A multi-color phantom Fluorite nicely perched on a sculptural matrix covered with druzy Quartz crystals. Excellent transparency and in fine condition, there are a few additional Fluorites on the specimen one of which is a slender, highly elongated cube. A classic European locale, the La Viesca Mine is famed for vibrant color varieties and general quality of its Fluorites. This one is a bit unusual but still has the look and style well known from this venerable locality.
Fluorite - cube with beveled edges
stock #18.1-236
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
2.5 x 2.2 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $280
Worldwide mix summer

Transparent cube, slightly elongated with beveled edges and light purple color. From the small digs at the Llamas site, this has both clear and lightly frosted faces, no damage but some contacts that can be seen through the cube from different angles. We are very impressed with the quality of these Fluorites, they are one of the best recent finds for the specie.
Fluorite- gem clear tabular habit
stock #18.1- 140
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
3.7 x 2.7 x 1.6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $290
Spring update

A super toenail sized Fluorite with a very fine flattened cube form and top clarity. From the small but important Llamas Quarry in Northern Spain, this is in pristine condition. The matrix is a mass of small crystals of Fluorite all showing the elongations and beveled edges that are classic for this area. Choice.
Fluorite- Elongated gemmy cubes
stock #17.1-888
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
3.7 x 2.4 x 2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $160
Pre Holiday 2017

A super clear, nearly colorless (with a very slight tinge of purple) cluster of two elongated cubes. The crystals are in epitaxial orientation as well. The Fluorites from Llamas are almost always beveled on the edges and often elongated, sometimes on two different axis as is this one. No matrix at all, the back and underside were contacted and recrystallized, and one old cleavage break has also had some regrowth. The facing side for display is almost air clear, sharp and lustrous. A very good example of this small but impressive locality.
Barite on Fluorite with stepped faces
stock #17.1-690
Emilio Mine, Lorone, Colunga
Asturias, Spain
9.3 x 7.8 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $490
Pre Holiday 2017

Sharp Fluorite with classic form of complexly stepped cubes (distinctive of some Asturias specimens) is the base for a spray of flat Barite crystals. Choice display specimen that is better in person, the Fluorite has a pale violet-blue color and a few purple phantoms. In fine condition damagewise, the delicate Barite blades are surprisingly all intact. Looks good from all sides this has no point of attachment it is fully crystallized on all faces. A remarkable specimen from all angles.
