ID: CC19892
Wow! A delightful and quite different combination of lustrous black Cassiterite crystals alongside tiny, gemmy lilac Fluorite cubes, both sitting on glassy, light grey prism faces of horizontal Quartz crystals. From Krupka (Graupen) in the Krušné Hory Mountains of the Czech Republic, the Cassiterite forms complex crystals to 1.5 cm which contrast wonderfully against the rich scattering of micro-cubic Fluorite crystals with a texture of pale lilac sugar with a glassy lustre. An eye-catching cabinet specimen at a most reasonable price, complete with the previous collector’s label.
