Fluorite

ID: CC1763

A really lovely combination piece with a sharp green Fluorite octahedron, accompanied by two smaller octahedrons, intergrown with elongate milky Quartz. The Fluorites are well formed with waxy to satin lustre, slight frosting on the crystal faces, and are a lovely transparent green colour. The colour is nicely offset by the milky Quartz with a more subdued lustre. What makes the specimen so cool is that the main Fluorite crystal is growing from the middle of a double terminated Quartz crystal, with a 'cactus' Quartz appearance from a druse of smaller crystals along the length. Very aesthetic.
