Fluorite With Galena, Quartz, Pyrite Inclusions
Miniature, 4.9 x 4.6 x 3.3 cm
Gibraltar Mine, Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico
Water-clear, SHARP cuboctohedral flurites perched one upon the other in a delicately balanced cluster upon a short stack of galena crystals! These fluorites are so clear you can look through to the galena inside or at the back. Also, there is a really neat group of floating pyrite crystals inside the large lower fluorite here, showing what appears to be a cast after an earlier crystal of fluorite or galena where the pyrite specks cumulatively retain the outline of a cubic predecessor. very NEAT, though subtle.
