ID: CC3164
A stunning intergrown group of fine gemmy to translucent cubic pastel-peppermint green Fluorite crystals, dominated by one excellent crystal measuring 4 cm on edge.  From El Hammam in the Meknès-Tafilalet Region of Morocco, the Fluorite crystals display to advantage and show stepped growth development in the form of patterned squares and changes in their angle of reflectance, all with a bright glassy lustre.  Scattered over the Fluorites are micro-crystals of bright golden Pyrite and 1 to 3 mm double terminated milky to creamy semi-transparent Quartz crystals.  Also on this small cabinet specimen are three milky Calcite crystals with nail-head terminations, the longest measuring 2.5 cm.  A beautiful example of Fluorite with associated minerals from El Hammam.
