Fluorite on Quartz

ID: CC1523

A sweet specimen from the mid 2012 find of a single pocket of specimens in the Erongo Mountains. The specimen features a partial modified Fluorite crystal, translucent with deep purple near surface colouration. The crystal has tiny stepped growth features which the colour concentration follows. The Fluorite is aesthetically framed by prismatic Quartz crystals, with naturally frosted crystal faces, and a hint of smokiness.
