NRK32 Fluorite on Quartz, Calcite
Boldut Mine, Cavnic, Marmures Co., Romania
6.1x 5.5x 2.2 cm

A specimen of honey colored calcite crystals on quartz, with a single fluorite cube perched on one of the calcites. I remember when I started collecting, Romanian minerals were almost as common as the comparable Peruvian material is today. These days they are still available, but with the majority of the mines in the area now closed, they are available on nowhere near the same scale as before.
