Another passion is the fluorites from Weisseck Mountain. It is not easy to find fluorite on the Weisseck. There are no visible signs and no fluorite veins in the rock that can offer clues. Success must rely on long experience, an inner instinct, and a bit of luck. Again, years of exploration by serious collectors have yielded only a handful of significant finds. I worked on all the clefts and discovered some by myself. The summit cleft is described in Mineralogical Record’s, July 2010 issue. All the fluorites shown in that article are from my collection. So there is a lot to tell.
