ID: CC20207
A quite gorgeous miniature featuring superb octahedral Fluorite crystals and gemmy, teal-blue Fluorapatite prisms from the tungsten-molybdenum greisen deposit at Kara-Oba in the Betpakdala Desert, Kazakhstan.  The Fluorite forms spectacular, opaque, intensely deep blackberry-purple octahedral crystals to 1.9 cm on edge, with scaly stepped faces built from various geometries of the cube-octahedral habit.  These faces have a waxy to steely lustre.  Certain faces aligned to one direction are coated with earthy-matt, mauve-lavender micro-crystalline Fluorite producing a most aesthetic aspect.  To one side is a 4.0 x 3.5 x 3.5 triangular coverage of superb prismatic hexagonal Fluorapatite crystals with flat pinacoids of aquamarine-teal blue and gemmy.  Exquisite!
