Really cool specimen! That locality produced a wide range of fluorites, from orange ones (reminiscent of the honigspat fluorites from Wölsendorf/Bavaria) and many shades of yellow, green and purple to this nearly black ones. Many of them even show zonings and different colours in one crystal. Really a nice locality for fluorite lovers :)

Yes, I agree, along with Beihilfe Mine, many interesting fluorites. I wish I knew more about the localities but there is very little information in English, that I can find. Guess I need to learn more German language!

Eine gute Idee, Jesse ;-) Being a teacher of German, I could teach you ... I demand only one of your fluorite specimens for each lesson ;-)

As long as you don't mind a flat or two of Rogerley, I might be able to accommodate you.
