Fluorite

ID: CC20613
A near perfect cube of beautiful deep ivy leaf-green Fluorite from the perfectly named Poison Ivy Pocket at Lady Annabella mine.  The largest cube measures between 3.7 and 3.0 cm on edge and sits atop smaller, surrounding crystals.  The Fluorite from this pocket is entirely green, but the micro-crazed faces and interiors produce a frosted appearance and texture which, despite looking creamy white, is a trick of the eye.  The edges, and especially the corners, remain transparent, almost gemmy, contrasting beautifully with the frosted areas.  The gemmy ivy-green corners contain purple zoning which fluoresces purple-blue in daylight.  A gorgeous specimen.
