Hi Am,

It looks to me as from Valzergues. Are you sure is from Le Burc?

Best Regards

Jordi

I have to rely on the information I received from the dealer. It came out of a very large collection the dealer purchased. It is possible that it was incorrectly labeled.

I agree with Jordi, this yellow color is typical from Valzergues. Yellow cubic fluorite does not exist in Le Burg (and not Le Burc).

In the same area you also have Peyrebrune with yellow cubes.

Absolutely Philippe, but I said Valzergues by the thin violet line in the corners of the crystals which is typical from Valzergues as well as the extra faces in the corners of the crystals (visible at the bottom of the lower crystal)

I like Oppu Mine rhodos, they are always something special. Never seen them as a pseudomorph, very interesting.
