This is an exceptionally large and quality specimen of stair-stepped, highly translucent green Fluorite. There are a couple of large crystals on the left and right bottom front of the piece that have a light purple shade to them, creating a nice contrast. The crystals are all intergrown and highly modified, and stair-stepped on all surfaces. To add to the aesthetics is a light coating of white Quartz in some of the crevices, adding a nice dimension to the piece. The amazing translucency of this piece can be seen in the backlit pics, and the closeup pics highlight the extensive stair-stepping crystal formation. This is a rare find for its size, clarity, crystal formation, aesthetics and damage-free condition.
