Fluorite on Quartz W/Hematite Over Apophyllite
Mahodari, Nasik, Maharashtra, India
Cabinet, 11.5 x 7.9 x 3.9 cm
One of India's sensations of recent years has been these spherical Fluorites, which are unparalleled for size and attractiveness. This particular specimen consists of three intergrown spheres (4 cm across!) that have a lovely medium honey color and are quite gemmy. Factor in the unusual association with amethystine quartz matrix, and you have an aesthetic and unusually displayable specimen.
