Fluorite on Dolomite

ID: CC18007
A lovely miniature of a single 1.8 x 1.4 x 1.4 cm translucent violet Fluorite crystal jauntily sitting atop a jumbled mound of highly lustrous creamy-white Dolomite crystals with gently curved faces.  The Fluorite crystal is a slightly elongated cube, with offset prism faces, beautifully patterned with complex growth structures.  In transmitted light the Fluorite is an intense inky-violet. A terrific little Fluorite from Elmwood mine, Carthage, Tennessee.  The specimen is mounted on a small clear acrylic base.
