The Llamas Quarry is a lesser known Fluorite producing locality in Asturias, on the north edge of Spain along the Bay of Biscay. In 2010 and 2011 some of the finest gem quality Fluorites were discovered and stashed away by one of the locals, who compiled a beautiful suite of specimens with varying habits and colors. According to our source, no more have been found, and nobody else seems to have them for sale now. We were fortunate to obtain a couple of crystals at the Tucson Show, and we're happy to bring them to you. There are several aspects to these specimens that make them so special. First is their impeccable quality from the standpoint of WATER CLEAR clarity along with amazingly sharp, lustrous and well-formed crystals. The crystals on this specimen shows a very light lavender hue. You might think the crystals are simple cubes, but if you look closely along the edges, you will see thin dodecahedral modifying faces, and a couple of the corners actually show RARELY seen triangular trapezohedral faces! So not only is the quality superb (it actually looks better than the photos might indicate), but it shows rare crystal faces for the species. A tiny bit of Quartz matrix can be seen at the base of the crystals. Beautiful material, a great pickup for any thumbnail collector, a Fluorite collector or somebody who appreciates fine crystallization. Don't miss out as these have not been seen for several years, and may never come out again. .
