Its regular fluorite, not the red kind. I can bring it with me to work and you can drop by if you want.

Let me know if you need any more than that. I'll be in the central valley this weekend and can pick up bags of this stuff for you (either the regular kind of the red). Costs around $12-13/bag and tax.

I think Albany sells Flourite for $30 for two bags (it's more if you buy only a single bag). My LFS in Fremont sells it for $17/bag.
