A fluorite vein mined in the 1950's. Today, an adit, a shaft and a trench are still visible. Classical fluorite samples from this deposit are small pale yellow cubic crystals on purple octahedrons covered by quartz. Actually, transparent glassy bright honey-yellow cubic crystals labeled "Piboul" come from a small parallel vein called "Piéma".
