Fluorite, Quartz (Var: Rose Quartz), Quartz
Cabinet, 11.0 x 7.0 x 6.3 cm
Kavalerovo Mining District, Dal'negorsk (Dalnegorsk; Tetyukhe; Tjetjuche; Tetjuche), Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia
A superb, 4.8 cm, translucent, sea-green, rounded fluorite octahedron aesthetically perched on quartz matrix from the Ed David Collection. The internal refractions within the fluorite are beautiful and there is even a touch of rose quartz (close-up) to the left of the fluorite. This outstanding cabinet piece is from the less well-known Kavalerovo Mining District, near Dal'negorsk, Russia. This is a much rarer locale for specimens than the nearby Dal'negorsk mines.
