Nice Panasqueira specimen, Firmo!
What are the tiny reddish crystals, another generation of fluorite?

Hi Tobi.

Thanks for your message.

The caramel-colored crystals perhaps look In the photo like octahedrons of a second fluorite generation.

But I´ve consulted with a great Panasqueira expert (our friend Jordi Fabre, overall FMF coordinator) and they are prisms with a rhombic section. It is siderite.

Best regards .

----------------------------------------------------

This period at home, due the Covid-19, has allowed me to play with some software to get more decent photos. I hope you like some of them.
