OKH-588    Fluorite on Barite   Berbes, Asturias, Spain.  Ex.  Paul and Dawne Dunning Collection.  This is an extremely high quality miniature measuring 4.6 x 3 0.4 x 1.9 cm.  There are only a few cubes but they are of extremely high quality being water clear and up to 1.5 cm each.  This specimen is a floater with the only damage being to two tiny barites on back of specimen that form is unusual and almost indescribable piece.  Some of the fluorite surfaces have minor quartz overgrowths with tiny fluorites on top of that.  A fluorites are so clear that every tiny detail of the underlying barites can be ascertained.  The images fail to show how gemmy the fluorites really are.  I really like this piece and can’t see how any serious fluorite collector would find it to be anything other than exceptional.  Minor blue mineral adhesive on base should be removed.  Stunning miniature!  $575

OKH-379

Note modifications and stepped growth

OKH-379    Calcite and Dolomite on Fluorite     Mina Jaimina, Caravia, Asturias, Spain.  Fine, large, fluorite cubes to 3 cm each on edge compose this beautiful specimen.  There is minor brown dolomite and white double terminated calcites to add color and shape contrasts.  Minor sulfide inclusions in the calcites and fluorites, as well.  The nice thing about this piece is the strong tetrahexahedral form that is quite noticeable on each fluorite.  The fluorite surfaces are also highly stepped making the overall appearance quite dramatic.  Minor edge contacts and one small fluorite crystal has a minor rub.  Attractive and priced to go.  125$
