Fluorite (rough and cut set)
Miniature, 5.0 x 2.8 x 2.4 cm (Crystal), 18.56 ct (Gem)
Chumar Bakhoor, Hunza Valley, Gilgit District, Gilgit-Baltistan (Northern Areas), Pakistan

5.0 x 2.8 x 2.4 cm (Specimen); 18.56 carats; 17.78 mm x 14.64 mm (Gem) - Fluorite is known in a wide range of colors, but pink is arguably the most sought after hue for collectors. The faceted gem in this set is a wonderful example of how good gem Fluorite can be. This "Oval Brilliant" cut gem is not only bright and lively, but has virually eye clean clarity. The crystal that accompanies the set is a very gemmy, wonderfully pink color, cuboctahedral example of the classic Fluorites from this locality. A great balanced rough and cut set from one of the most famous Fluorite producers in the world.
