Fluorite, Muscovite
Nagar (Nagir), Hunza Valley, Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 5.0 x 4.5 x 3.7 cm
A PERFECT, COMPLETE-all-around, GEMMY, crystal perched PERFECTLY on matrix! No wonder it was the cover for the special issue ON fluorite! Note that the specimen has been cleaned since its original shot, removing the iron staining which in person was quite distracting (though I admit it looked interesting in the cover shot). 5 x 4.5 x 3.7 cm
