ID: CC17817
Four well-formed, translucent inky purple Fluorite octahedral crystals measuring to 2.3 cm form an intergrown chain along a crystalline and banded Aragonite.  From the Huraiskoye Fluorite Deposit in Zabaykalsky Krai, in central eastern Russia, the Fluorite displays some stepped growth which adds to the complexity of the octahedral crystals.  Triangular growth patterns are also displayed in the octahedral faces which add to the overall aesthetic.  Later stage Aragonite has formed on some of the Fluorite crystals as light grey to milky white botryoidal crystalline aggregates.  A fine example of Fluorite with Aragonite from this little known locality.
