The Spanish Fluorites are well known by the mineral collectors. The best samples come from Asturias, a territory located at the north of Spain.
Berbes, La Viesca, Jaimina are some of the names of the mines where the finest Fluorites are extracted. The Fluorite deposits in Asturias are two main types. The first ones are veins within the fault base of the Carboniferous rocks, sub-vertical, narrow and with high-grade ores. This first type of deposits has been mined using vertical shafts, inclined planes with adits and other methods properly for narrow veins. The second type is of strata, which are above the first type and wich are more disperse and of lower grade. These ones have been worked mainly in open adits but sometimes by underground mining by chambers and pillars.
