The extensive mining district of Horní Slavkov lies in the far western extremity of the Czech Republic and its well known for its wide variety of minerals.  This small miniature Fluorite is composed from intergrown opaque cubic crystals with an inky intensity of blackberry-purple crazed by a network of light plum surface patterns.  The cubic crystals average around 1 cm on edge and have a near surface translucency that allows small zones of the crystal faces to transmit light.  Covering a milky-grey cryptocrystalline Quartz matrix, this is a nice example from Horní Slavkov in the Karlovy Vary Region of Bohemia.
