stock #21.1-339
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
2.9 x 1.8 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $480
Late Summer 2021

A pair of edge modified cubes of transparent Fluorite in an esthetic cluster. The condition is incredible with textbook perfect form, the color a light violet and the one crystal is tabular. An excellent large thumbnail, it is hard to capture the clarity and form in photos, in person it is especially impressive. The faces appear glass-like and smooth at first but on close inspection with good lighting the surfaces are covered with tiny geometric growth structures. A few very tiny Fluorite cubes are perched on this as well, and there is a shard of snow-like Quartz matrix that adds a nice sparkle. Aside from a small cleave on the underside of the lower crystal (not visible on display) this is perfect from all points of view, competitive quality.

Fluorite - gemmy
stock #21.1-317
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
3.1 x 2.3 x 2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $550
Late Summer 2021

Limpid clear and perfect a single modified cube of light violet Fluorite on a small matrix druse of Quartz. Some faces are perfectly glass-like while other have some etched growth structures. The insides of the cube are fully transparent with no inclusions. From the small but remarkable locality of Cantera Llamas, this is far better than typical for this find, a competition grade thumbnail. The clear cube is more impressive in person as the color and clarity are hard to render on a computer screen.

stock #AX-32-234
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
2.7 x 1.6 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160

Transparent violet Fluorite with an unusual edge modification that is only seen on two adjacent edges. A nice looking thumbnail with some light face frosting and no damage, this is a fine example for the habit and locality. Cubes with edge modifications are not very unusual BUT a cube with just one or two edges beveled is quite uncommon. There are no corner modifications either, simply some edges are cleanly beveled. Even without the odd crystallography this is a nice thumbnail.

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 - 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.
