- Fluorite on Quartz
- Cabinet, 10.2 x 6.3 x 3.0 cm
- Riemvasmaak, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
Aesthetically perched high atop a matrix of lustrous and translucent, colorless, stubby quartz crystals, to 1.7 cm in length, are two VERY sharp octohedrons of lustrous and translucent, rich emerald green fluorite to 2.4 cm on an edge. The fluorite crystals intersect each other but do not appear to be twinned. The sharp perch and extreme gemminess of these crystals makes this piece a higher level of quality than most such specimens in this size and price range. As a bonus, the fluorite crystals fluoresce a brilliant purple color.
