The electronic structure and g factors of simple impurity centers and hexamer ytterbium clusters in fluorites have been calculated in terms of the exchange charge model. Preliminarily, their local crystal structures have been calculated in the framework of the shell model with the inclusion of lattice distortions near the impurity.
