An unusual new style of fluorite from this older district, these trickled out over the last two years at ever-increasing prices. This one is a superbly balanced small cabinet piece, with fat and juicy fluorites coming out at the viewer...more 3D in person. The green core on the underside of this fluorite combines to turn some of the deep purple fluorite crystals, a lovely shade of aqua when strongly backlit. The fluorite crystals, to 4.5 cm across, are all cuboctahedrons with great luster and translucence. Minor, bladed, white calcite is also present.
