ID: CC19784

Deep lemon cubic Fluorite crystals are sparsely scattered over an iron stained light creamy-grey matrix from the Moldava deposit in the Krušné Hory mountains of the Czech Republic.  A perfectly equant, 1.3 cm edged cubic Fluorite crystal, twinned with a slightly smaller crystal, is jauntily perched on top of the brick-red stained matrix, with two smaller such crystal lower down.  All the Fluorites are a stunning and intense deep lemon-yellow and feature near-surface included micro-spherical inclusions of likely Chalcopyrite and all have an outer framed rim of paler Fluorite which occasionally picks up the reddish hue of the matrix.  Small Chalcopyrite crystals are sparingly scattered over the front surface of the matrix.  A great Fluorite of beautiful colour.
