ID: CC19718
This mouth-wateringly delicious small miniature features two prominent cubic crystals of mottled, translucent lilac and opaque deep plum Fluorite surrounded by 40 to 50 gemmy lilac hexagonal Fluorapatite crystals to 7 mm.  This beautiful combination is from Horní Slavkov in the Karlovy Vary Region of the Czech Republic.  It stands out from the crowd because of its vibrant tones of lilac and purple together with the Fluorapatite’s brilliant lustre.  Iridescent purple, blue and golden Chalcopyrite crystals rest on the Fluorite and glassy translucent, creamy-grey Quartz crystals punctuate the specimen.  What the specimens lacks in size is more than made-up for by its quality.  A stunning miniature.
