An outstanding specimen, this one must be among your personal favourites in your collection, I guess? You really show us a great collection, but this one is imho one of the very best specimens of all!

It is my favorite specimen. :)

I have seen dozens of Le Burc fluorites in France, but never as beautiful as this one.
Surely one of the best in this size.

I am absolutely jealous.
