Another nice fluorite twin from Beihilfe. Very much like Weardale twins, but not strongly fluorescent.

The beryl is almost certainly from Adun Chilon (Sherlova Gora), Transbaikal, Siberia. The beryls from there are well known for color banding. See Mineralogical Almanac, v. 19, n. 2 (2014) for details ...

A classic Boltsburn fluorite twin, found at the Tucson show last month. Most likely recovered circa 1910-1920, but unfortunately no old labels or historical information accompanied the specimen.
