Fluorite, Purple with Quartz
A superb, very large specimen hosting numerous stepped cubo-octahedral Fluorite crystals. The Fluorite crystals are a unique blue-purple color, incredibly lustrous and transparent, and perfectly spaced throughout the piece. Then there is a subsequent overgrowth of miniature white-to-colorless Quartz crystals covering the entire matrix and even a few random Quartz crystals on the Fluorite crystals – all on a bed of green/purple Fluorite. A truly stunning piece with amazing luster, balance and contrast. You have to see it in person – truly striking and in excellent condition.
