ID: CC19719

A super, rather eye-catching large miniature of deep purple, glassy, cubic Fluorite crystals, all about 3 to 4 mm on edge, scattered over the termination of a cleaved translucent milky-light grey Quartz crystal with a light-flesh-pink patina.  The fluorite crystals have intensely bright mirror-like faces and with slightly stepped-curved edges and where smaller cubes have developed, they become a gemmy mauve.  A great Fluorite and Quartz specimen from the Cínovec/Zinnwald orebody, spanning Saxony and the Ústí Region (Bohemia) in Germany and the Czech Republic.
