Fluorite on Quartz

ID: CC5143

A neat specimen of inter grown and single crystals of Fluorite on Quartz from the Bere Alston Mines, Devon. Crystals of Fluorite measuring to 1cm display an octahedral form, composed of stepped cubic crystals, with a Mayan-Aztec temple appearance. Crystals of Fluorite are a translucent pastel green on a druse of colourless-white sparkling Quartz. Also scattered over the Quartz crystals are crystals of Sphalerite and Galena, on a matrix of white Quartz with a light brown country rock.
