Perched on a small amount of white Baryte is an equant, lustrous and translucent, color zoned fluorite cube, measuring 3 cm across. The edge color is dark purple but the core is amber colored when backlit. The fluorite crystals emit a bright uranium yellow under fluorescent light (petroleum inclusions?). Overall, just a fine, sharp miniature of a classic style. RCL 1876
