Fluorite on Celestine
Muzquiz, Coahuila,Mexico
Cabinet, 10.5 x 6.4 x 4.1 cm
Ex. Richard Heck
A classic combo piece from Mexico, these are seldom seen today! Enveloping a lustrous and translucent, stark white celestine crystal, measuring 8.75 cm in length, are purple fluorite crystals, to 2 cm across. The fluorites are lustrous and translucent and exhibit a light purple color. The piece actually is almost smothered with fluorite, complete except only for one broken crystal at upper-left as shown in the first photos. Nevertheless, that tilts out and away, and is not immediately notiecable although price was halved accordingly. It looks good form all sides, and up or down.
