Fluorite on Quartz

ID: CC388
An attractive Frazer's Hush Fluorite of intergrown twinned crystals. The Fluorite is a beautiful purple, with pale yellow frosted areas, and quite transparent. The lustre ranges from glassy to matt. The largest twinned crystal measures to 2cm and sits centrally on the specimen. The Fluorites are on a druse of white Quartz which in turn shows the negative impression of the large Fluorite cube it originally grew on. Minor damage along the edges of the cubes as reflected in the price. Superb daylight fluorescence to bright purple.
