Davina had 5 fluorites from the new find in Ireland and they are pictured here. I had 30, with a bigger sign advertising them, and they are not shown here. Jolyon spent long enough at my table chatting to someone about cameras, with a big sign advertising the fluorites, and a big spread of specimens of same less than a metre away to his left. Should have gone to Specsavers Jolyon?
