I have a specimen of red quartz sitting on purple fluorite. But I don't know the exact locality of it. Is it from Spain?

To my eyes, it looks not as from Spain
Seems like red quartz over fluorite. Never seen before,,,,,
Could it not be just a man made combo specimen?

With best wishes

I just searched the gallery of FMF and found that it might be from Germany.

Johannesschacht Mine, Wölsendorf, Schwarzach bei Nabburg, Wölsendorf West District, Upper Palatinate/Oberpfalz, Bavaria/Bayern, Germany

Is it right?

The new issue of Rocks & Minerals has an article on iron-bearing (ferruginous) quartz by Dr. Carl Francis. One of the photos is ferruginous quartz on purple fluorite from Wolsendorf, Bavaria, Germany.
