A single, large colourless Fluorite crystal with smooth cubic and stepped octahedral faces is from the Corvara mine in the Sarentino Valley of Bolzano Province, Italy.  The largest face measures 7.5 x 4.0 cm at its extreme points and two of the chamfered corners display octahedral planes with characteristic stepped-cubic faces.  On first appraisal this specimen appears to have a cleaved back face, but on examination is seen to be covered with small cubic crystals.  These have either re-healed a naturally cleaved face or form an original re-orientated face controlled by the available in-situ accommodation space.  This transparent to semi-transparent crystal is criss-crossed by internal cleavage planes that manifest as rectangular and lozenge-shaped geometrical surface features.  A real beauty!
