Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 7.1 x 4.5 cm
Ex. Paul Zerfass
An absolutely sensational and sharp, large, multicolored fluorite from France! This piece is incredibly unique in displaying an internal core of dark blue fluorite surrounded by an exterior of pale sea green-blue with internal highlights of yellow-orange; unusual in the combination and colors. The edges and corners are razor sharp. Contacted on the bottom where it was attached to the pocket and minor contacting around the periphery pretty much out of display view. Spectacular piece from the important French suite of French field collector, Paul Zerfass (see Le Regne Minerale article on the collection, available by request).
