Hi, I'm José Ramón García Álvarez, a Spanish fluorite collector since 1970, and one of the authors of the book "The fluorite: a century of mining in Asturias" published in 2009 ( https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?t=622 )

I will display to all members and visitors of this forum some of my Asturian fluorites. Enjoy!

Hola Jose Ramón

Good to see your specimens on the forum. As usual they are great. I did finish your book and found it very interesting, although it took me a long time to read it. Please keep adding more photos

Un abrazo

James

Hola José,

Thanks to sharing with us.One question did La Collada's area produce many fluorite with chalcopyrite combination or is it just unusual ?

Gracias

Hello Jose,

Thank you for posting photos of some of your collection, and thank you again for the book. Some day soon I hope to come to Oviedo and see the rest of your fluorites.

Thanks to all by the received praises, I will continue putting new photographs in the forum so that all the enthusiastic the mineralogy and mainly to which they like fluorites can enjoy with the images.
In response to the question of Chris, no, the presence in the mines of "La Collada" of important masses of sulfides crystals is not frequent, although small crystals of chalcopyrite and pyrite are very frequent perched on the cubes of fluorite and others including in their interior, also in certain occasions small sphalerite crystals can be found in "La Viesca" mine.
Jesse I hope that you come soon to Oviedo to enjoy showing my fluorites and making a route by all the emblematic mines of this Spanish zone.But perhaps I see you in Sainte Marie this 2010.
James, I understand that it has had been long time to you to read it because you have a little oxidized your Spanish you must come but often to Spain by purely playful reasons as it can be a mineralogicall tour, already you know the invitation is done..
Thanks other time
