RM1932   Fluorite with baryte

Moscona mine, Villabona area, SolĂ­s, Corvera de Asturias, Asturias, Spain

Historically the most representative fluorite specimens from mina Moscona are yellow, recently some of violet tones have been collected. This ancient specimen is one of the few that appeared in the mine with this pink to purple color, with zoning. It is a floater, formed by growths of cubic crystals with faces with polysynthetic growths, very brilliant and translucent. They are partially covered with sharp tabular barite crystals, between transparent to opaque on the outer edges. No damage, good size and fluorescent (UV-LW). A very unusual piece for this classic Spanish mine, from a former German collection.

Size: 16 x 14 x 6.5 cm.

Fluorescent under long wave UV
