Fluorite, Green on Matrix
I was visiting family in Pagosa Springs, CO and met a dealer who had just picked this and other specimens up from a local miner. The crystal formation is more intergrown and highly modified although I do see some cubic lines here and there, but what impressed me was the transparency of these Fluorite crystals – just like glass with a light green tint. Great vitreous luster and an unusual location makes for a unique and attractive piece.
