Consisting of large, parallel growth crystals, to 7 cm across, this fluorite specimen is lustrous and translucent with cores of light purple and edges of darker purple creating beautiful highlights of coloration throughout. There are also two small, glassy and gemmy, colorless calcite crystals attached on the front side for a bit of an accent. A classic, beautiful specimen from the district showing the stepped cube habit. RCL 483
