Impressive plate of very sharp, attractive Fluorites from the well-known, but now-closed, Erika Mine in Bavaria. The glassy, highly translucent, intergrown cubes reach up to 2.5 cm on edge, and the Fluorites have a rich, fern-green color. The cubes are highlighted, dramatically, by preferential Hematite inclusions, as well as preferential dustings of mm-size Baryte crystals. The plate backlights well, and the Fluorites have excellent fluorescence. A very fine example from this extinct locality. This is prominently illustrated in the recent 64-page article on Kay in Mineralien Welt (6-2017).
