This really balanced and contrasting "combo specimen" features a doubly terminated, lustrous and translucent, amber colored calcite crystal, 7 cm in length which is perched on lustrous and translucent, color zoned fluorite crystals to 3.2 cm across. The fluorite crystals exhibit a light purple core and darker colored edges. It is starkly dramatic, 3-dimensional, and complete all around. Mined in 1987 from the Butterknife pod. RCL #0786.
