La Cabaña, Zona Minera de Berbes, Ribadesella, Asturias, España


In Berbes, Asturias, one of the most famous pockets was the pocket of 'Coquera del Liso' found in March 1993. One huge rock, which weighed more than 50 tons, had fallen from the cliffs. Inside this rock local collectors found great water clear fluorite crystals with naturally modified corners, frequently associated with quartz and barite.
