For many years Dick Jones, a dealer in Casa Grande, Arizona collected fluorite from a locality in Pine Canyon, Grant Co., NM. and labeled it as being from Catron Co., New Mexico. This was done to hopefully prevent others from finding the locality and competing with him. Most of it if not all was in the form of octahedral crystals that were covered with drusy quartz which he would etch off with hydrofluoric acid, and then put out in the sun to change the color to pink and red. He sold thousands of these specimens over many years. All specimens of this material should be relabeled as from Pine Canyon, Grand Co., New Mexico, USA. Raymonde De Mark, one of our New Mexican experts say that he has never seen any fluorite from Catron Co. that even looked like a good specimen.
