Hi Jesse, outstanding specimens, thanks for sharing! All of them are truly superb, I like the second and the third one the most. Really really great contribution to this thread!

Please more - I know you have many many world-class fluorites and for sure you haven't shown most of them yet ;-)

Regards
Tobi


Thanks, Tobi. Seems that I need to go back and check on what I've posted in the past as I seem to be repeating myself! I'll try not to do this again. Cheers!
