ID: CC20603
The Layer Cake Pocket, although of limited extent and relatively few specimens, produces magnificent combinations of lemon Fluorite, crystallised Galena and gemmy, diamond-like Quartz crystals.  A delicious mineralogical mixture which has resulted in a cake of delightful aesthetics.  Transparent honey-lemon Fluorite cubes of 1.2 to 2 cm form a 4 x 6.5 cm cluster attached to intergrown cubic Galena crystals of metallic black, all with natural skeletal etching.  Dusted over the entire specimen are stubby double-terminated colourless and gemmy Quartz crystals.  It is the preferential distribution of the Quartz which highlights the layered nature of this pocket.  The layered deposition of the Quartz crystals indicates the “way-up” of the specimen while in-situ.  A stunning and rare specimen for its size and quality from the layer Cake Pocket.
