The discovery a few years ago of beautiful green Fluorites with purple edging were quite the sensation, and they still command high prices and much attention. The Fluorites (almost 1 cm in size) have the same intense green color and purple zoning by the corners, and many have modified corners (cubes modified by octahedrons, I believe). The luster is good, and the crystal surfaces vary from glassy smooth to slightly etched. Combined with the Muscovite and the Albite, this has proven to be a classic locality.
