SF-01: Fluorite: Berbes District, Ribadesella, Asturias Province, Spain: $150.00

Sharp light violet Fluorite crystals to 6 cm. from the Berbes District, Ribadesella, Asturias, Spain. In great condition except for one crystals on the edge of the specimen which has a missing corner. From the collection of Buck Keller of Mechanicsville, Maryland. A European Classic!!
Specimen Dimensions: 13 x 8.5 x 7.5 cm. Weight: 927 grams.
SF-02: Fluorite & Dolomite: Berbes District, Ribadesella, Asturias Province, Spain: $250.00
An excellent group of sharp ‘optical’ clear Fluorite crystals to 3 cm. from the Berbes District, Ribadesella, Asturias, Spain. A great example of an unusual fluorite color for Berbes, from old finds. Unfortunately some crystals have small nicks to some corners, but many of what appear to be cleaved corners are actually just octahedral modifications to the cube corners. Still a good piece for the price. From the collection of Buck Keller of Mechanicsville, Maryland.

SF-06: Fluorite: La Cucina Mine, Villabona, Asturias Province, Spain: $100.00
Bright yellow fluorite crystals with white dolomite and clear calcite crystals from the La Cocina Mine, Villabona District, Asturias, Spain. A great specimen with sharp, gemmy fluorite crystals to 2 cm. and in fine condition. These were from a small find in the early 1980′s I believe, and are typically larger and gemmier than most fluorites I have seen from the nearby Moscona Mine. Classic!!
Specimen Dimensions: 11.5 x 6 x 5 cm. Weight: 362 grams.
