Fluorite with Calcite
This very large plate features numerals large, transparent, lustrous mint-green modified cubic crystals of Fluorite. Interspersed with the Fluorite crystals are numerous white, translucent, flattened rhombohedral Calcite crystals with pearly luster. The clarity and transparency of the Fluorite crystals is superb – you can clearly see through the crystals to the matrix. The contrast between the two colors and lusters is spectacular – a beautiful and aesthetic piece in excellent condition.
