The La Barre Mine (La Martinèche Mine) is an ancient fluorite mine which operated a large fluorite-quartz vein hosted in migmatites. The operation, from 1918 until 1948, produced 80 000 tons of ore. Today, adits are closed (since 2000) and only dumps remain but their search is prohibited... This deposit is well-known for its nice fluorite specimens especially blue crystals (sometimes with purple or yellow "phantoms") on quartz.
