ID: CC20507
The distinctive colour-zoned duck egg blue of these two intergrown Fluorite cubes is a characteristic of Le Burg mine in the Alban-Le Fraysse area of the Midi-Pyrénées, France.  Both cubes have only their top faces fully complete, measuring approximately 4.5 x 3.5 cm and 4.0 x 3.5 cm.  The crystals are semi-transparent with darker duck-egg blue bands concentric to the faces.  The crystal faces are built from smaller intergrown crystals and have the occasional double terminated Quartz crystal attached horizontally.  The Fluorite fluoresces mildly dull lilac in SWUV but under long wave, it is a bright whitish-lilac.  A delicious and beautifully coloured Fluorite from Le Burg mine, France.
