ID: CC21968
A fine small cabinet specimen of purple Fluorite, occasionally grading to sea green with two crude yet complex Hydrocerussite-coated galena crystals perched on top.  The Fluorite ranges from gemmy to opaque while the largest Fluorite crystal, to 2 cm on edge, displays a beautiful transition from mild blackberry purple to mid sea green with terrific gemmy patches.  The Fluorite covers a banded veinstone matrix which, although not evident when displayed, has a flat sawn base and back.  The Fluorite prisms naturally fluoresce bright blackberry purple in direct daylight and a uniform white lavender under LWUV.
