ID: CC8144
A superb Fluorite and Quartz combination from the famous Erzgebirge mining district in Saxony, Germany.  A pair of joined, translucent greyish milky Quartz crystals to 7 cm long are capped with an almost complete octahedral crystal of deep purple Fluorite, composed of small Fluorite cubes in stepped growth. This crystal measures 1.8 cm on edge and the lower half of the octahedron is cruder in its geometry due to the larger size of the individual Fluorite cubes. Six similar, but much smaller, Fluorite octahedral crystals are attached to the Quartz crystal’s prism faces.  An excellent old-time specimen of Fluorite on Quartz from this most classic of German localities.
