This small cabinet cluster of equant cubic Fluorite crystals from the Poison Ivy Pocket at Lady Annabella Mine is a standout specimen.  It is beautiful and delicious, good enough to eat!  As is the trait of Poison Ivy Pocket Fluorite, the cubes have translucent to opaque faces, as if filled with mossy creamy-peppermint sugar which grade to deep gemmy intense apple-green corners.  The combination is wonderful, making a specimen which really jumps out from the rest.  In direct daylight the corners fluoresce pale shades of lilac-blue, but this is very dependent on the orientation of the specimen!  At some angles, the gemmy corners remain acidic apple-green, but when turned only slightly, begin to naturally fluoresce.  A fascinating and scrumptious specimen!
