A single Fluorite cube with a small interpenetrate twin in the base, sharply formed and measuring 5cm in width. The Fluorite is lustrous with slightly uneven multistepped surfaces. It has a translucent blue 2mm edge around a darker opaque centre - greenish blue to grey. Colour differs under incandescent lights and daylight. On one face of the cube is an elongate shallow cavity with small Calcite crystals and Fluorite cubes. Interesting specimen from Heights.
