RM1243   Fluorite

Josefa-Veneros vein, Coroña de Arriba-La Collada, Siero, Asturias, Spain

Superb specimen of fluorite from the mythic vein called Josefa-Veneros. A druse of fluorite crystals showing the cube faces with beveled edges by the dodecahedron. Good brilliance and intense violet color with zoning, more intense on edges. The definition of faces and edges is excellent and the crystal size more than interesting. An opportunity to get a classic from Asturian fluorite, not easy (near impossible) to be found nowadays.


Size: 15 x 7 x 7 cm.
Main crystal: 8 x 8 mm.
Found in ±1975.
