Fluorite and Siderite on Quartz, Panasqueira Complex, Beira Baixa, Portugal miniature 2 x 2 x 4 cm $150. Online 3/11
Late in 2013 a small pocket was found that yielded a group of specimens of typical quartz and siderite. It was a nice little pocket and would have remained rather unremarkable except for the fact it was rich in purple fluorite crystals, a rarity from the ore body. This is a fine combination from the find with satin luster purple fluorite cubes perched on transparent quartz with associated siderite and muscovite. Aesthetic from any angle and undamaged. Great addition for any fluorite collection.
