ID: CC3826
Two finely developed intergrown crystals of Fluorite on Quartz from the Otjinamewa area in Brandberg, Namibia. Crystals of Fluorite display extensive development of stepped growth habit and, overall, the crystals measure to almost 6 cm. Edges of the stepped growth development are pleasingly picked out by lavender and violet streaks, delineating the crystal edges and set against a body colour of translucent pastel sea green.  Internal cleavage planes form mirror-like sheets within the cubic crystals, causing many internal reflections and an internal glow.  Set on a matrix of white drusy Quartz, which in turn has formed on a matrix of minty-green and lavender massive Fluorite.  A fine Fluorite from the Brandberg Area.
