ID: CC19449
Quite simply a lovely cabinet specimen of highly translucent greyish-green Fluorite with up-turned cubic crystals forming a ridge of three-sided pyramids encrusted in lustrous carmine-red Eisenkiesel Quartz crystals, each to 1 or 2 mm with perfect terminations.  The largest part cube measures 5.5 cm on its longest edge and all Fluorite crystals transmit a glassy crazed yellowish-green interior when back-lit.  The Eisenkiesel preferentially coats orientated Fluorite faces and beautifully delineates their edges.  A superb Fluorite and Eisenkiesel from the Wölsendorf Fluorite Mining District in Bavaria, Germany.
