Calcite, Fluorite, Pyrite from Moscona Mine.

Moscona mine.

More known for its fluorites of unusual white fluorescence with long phosphorescence in some samples being more common in most a more orange color.

Not only do their Fluorites show fluorescence, some Calcites also present a beautiful response of a pinkish color, being more common the non-fluorescence or the orange response by a coating that reminds me of Spharelite in some samples.

Mina Moscona.

Mas conocida por sus fluoritas de inusual fluorescencia blanca con larga fosforescencia en algunas muestras siendo mas comun en la mayoria un color mas anaranjado.

No solo sus Fluoritas presentan fluorescencia también algunas Calcitas presentan una bella respuesta de un color rosa exquisito siendo mas comun la No fluorescencia o la respuesta anaranjada por un recubrimiento que me recuerda a Esfarelita en algunas muestras .
