Pink Fluorite on Albite and Quartz
Miniature, 3.5 x 3.1 x 2.1 cm
Goscheneralp, Goschenen Valley, Uri, Switzerland

Pink fluorites from the Swiss Alps have been treasured classics for over a century, and this attractive miniature carries on the tradition. Here we have two mostly complete, rich pink octahedra on a matrix of classic Swiss granite and granular Quartz. The Fluorites are translucent with a silky luster, and are an attractive deep pink. The larger Fluorite octahedron reaches 1.4 cm on edge. Classic and choice, these Swiss pinks are hard to obtain when they are good quality.
