Fluorite With Pyrite Inclusions
Small Cabinet, 8.6 x 5.1 x 5.0 cm
Gibraltar Mine, Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico
A beautiful specimen with a rich pastel green color and TOTAL TRANSPARENCY, combined with unusually high internal glassy overall, this sparkles like crazy. The fluorites show stepped growth one upon another, with cubes modified by octohedral faces at the edges for some very reflective bevels. The golden pyrite inclusions add some obvious pizzazz, and make it really interesting an eyecatching, I believe. Pristine, complete all around (contacted only on the bottom), and just a very fine Naica fluorite of classic habit!
