ID: CC19870

A quite terrific small miniature of a colour-zoned Fluorite crystal perched on top of a colourless, transparent Quartz crystals.  The specimen is from Dal'negorsk in Primorskiy Kray, Russia.  The history of this specimen is not known, but it appears to have been sawn vertically along its length, leaving a striated surface from the circular saw blade through and down the Fluorite and Quartz.  A bad a s this sounds, the process has allowed the crystal habits to be viewed three dimensionally from one side and in cross-section from the other.  The Fluorite is an octahedral crystal, 1.8 to 2 cm on edge with a deep lilac core and a pale, sky-blue surface layer.  An interesting specimen mounted on a small square acrylic base.
