ID: CC19520
An aesthetic group of dark blackcurrant-purple, cubic crystals of Fluorite to 8 mm on edge, form a long, roughly triangular specimen which is preferentially dusted with bright glassy Quartz crystals each of around 1 mm diameter.  This is a great miniature of Fluorite from the well known Marienschacht mine in the W├Âlsendorf Fluorite Mining District of Bavaria, Germany.  The opaque to partly translucent Fluorite is almost black, but once well-lit, wonderful flashes of rich blackcurrant illuminate the surface.  The Quartz has been deposited from one direction; hence coating the Fluorite crystal faces orientated to a common direction of fluid flow.  A charming miniature Fluorite with Quartz from Bavaria.
