Thanks for asking me! I’ve recieved this question before so I decided to go ahead and publish my answer this time. I’ll list some favorites, including the localities and a link to some examples. In no particular order, my favs are:
- Rhodochrosite like these specimens from Romania or South Africa.I love the light pink blades from Romania and the stuff from South Africa looks like candy!
- Vanadinite from Morocco like thisor like this awesome specimen. The crystal formations are fascinating.
- Smithsonite from pretty much any location (examples). This stuff can come in just about any color and it sparkles.
- Fluorite from Germany, especially the Rainbow Fluorite. I also love Fluorite from Spain, China and Namibia. Yellow or golden fluorite is my favorite color but when I post it here it doesn’t get as many notes as purple fluorite, everyone seems to love that color best.
