Fluorite on Feldspar
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Cabinet, 11.0 x 7.9 x 3.4 cm
Just a feldspar? But one with so much style, it really impacted me. An intriguing "Y" formed by lustrous, elongated, porcelain-colored, orthoclase crystals to 11 cm in length is enhanced by a single, equant cube of lustrous and translucent fluorite (measuring 8 mm across). The core of the fluorite crystal is green while the edges are purple. Extremely aesthetic, and so sharp that it looks carved!
