Interesting and relatively new location for fluorite from Ireland. I've seen a few about for the last year or so, but not many, yet. Best location for Irish fluorite I've seen. Hopefully there will be more.

Here is a neat Elmood piece with Raspberry fluorite, dolomite and sphalerite. Its 10x7x5 cm. I think it has a nice balance to it...
