Fluorite, Green on Quartz
A really nice display piece featuring two translucent (see backlit pic), mint-green octahedral Fluorite crystals set on a matrix of white microcrystalline quartz. The fluorite crystals have a textured surface due to microscopic stepped crystal growth. The contrast, luster and color is nice, but I especially like the octahedron crystal shape, not as common as the cube and modified cube so often seen. Nice piece in good condition.
