Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 5.6 x 4.4 cm
Ex. Richard Heck

Superbly crystallized on a crust of splendent, metallic-silvery galena crystals, is a cluster of glassy and gemmy, pastel green fluorite crystals. they individually reach to 2.5 cm across, although of course as a cluster the width is much longer. The fluorites have unusual rounded corners on many faces, with just a slight bevel suggestive of a modification in growth. The fluorite crystals fluoresce a fantastic light lavender color. In person, in room lighting, the piece has a faint pastel green color to it. the lights for photography wash that out, a little bit. This is an outstanding combo specimen from Naica with sharp, symmetric fluorite crystals that just could not be perched more perfectly if you wished it. Such old piece are still the standard for "classic Naica style."
