This is a cluster of glassy to frosted, translucent to transparent lavender colored crystals, to 5 cm on an edge. Peripheral contact exists and one edge has minor damage but the major display face and crystals there and remain in excellent condition. What is truly remarkable about this fluorite is that, when backlit using halogen lighting (or daylight), the transparent areas fluoresce an even more intense and deep grape-juice-purple color (shown in lower-right photo, which also overemphasizes internal fractures in the UV light). This is a fairly uncommon locale and a large crystal for the mine,
