As recorded:
La Viesca Mine, Huergo, La Collada, Siero, Asturias, Spain

88mm x 68mm x 34mm
Description
Isolated transparent to translucent, slightly-beveled Fluorite cubes to 10 x 8 mm, with a nice blue color and purple zoning, are perched on contrasting clear to white, sharp Quartz points to 11 x 7 mm. The Quartz is clearly a cast, and is reportedly an epimorph of Calcite. One of the Fluorites has a clipped corner which may be a cleavage. This is an interesting specimen, and a great epimorph.ex.
