Cabinet, 11.6 x 7.0 x 3.5 cm
The gemmy cube faces with startlingly sharp purplish-blue color centers are highlights of this beautiful frosted green fluorite specimen. The largest cuboctahedral fluorite crystal measures 6 cm across. Unique, unusual pocket from this productive mine! It came out in late 2016 or early 2017, although previous finds never showed such color centers and were normally all green. The piece is actually complete all around, as it sheared off its matrix wall during growth and the back rehealed completely with sparkling druse of microcrystalline fluorite.
