A superb cluster of lustrous, translucent, honey-brown fluorite cubes beautifully accented with white celestine blades from the quarries at Clay Center, Ohio. The striking, large cube is 4.4 cm and all of the cubes have gemmy corners. Nice brownish-white fluorescence. This piece, dating prior to World War II, is from the John Grieger Collection.
