Fluorite

ID: CC1591

A super, small cabinet specimen of Fluorite from the well known Erongo Mountains area of Namibia. The Fluorite specimen displays a cluster of intergrown lustrous cubic crystals measuring to 1.9cm on edge. The vertices of the cubic Fluorite crystals are finely truncated by the Hexaoctahedran. Crystal cluster of Fluorite has a green body colour through which phantom crystals can be seen. The Fluorite crystals are pleasingly picked out on the vertices by a rich purple also apparent on the internal phantoms. A great specimen of Fluorite associated with gemmy colourless terminated crystals of Quartz from the Erongo.
