Fluorite

ID: CC1754

Killer form in this great specimen - three green Fluorite octahedrons are intergrown with several elongate 'cactus' Quartz crystals. The Fluorite crystals are well formed and transparent, with pitted crystal faces which gives them a frosted to satin lustre. The crystal faces become smoother with brighter lustre towards the tips allowing a clear 'window' into the Fluorites' interior. Elongate milky Quartz crystals are intergrown around the Fluorites, with microcrystals of Quartz growing along the length of the crystals to create the cactus look. Super sweet, one of our picks of the lot.
