One has to love the diversity and character of Okorusu Fluorites! An old classic from the 1990s, this particular piece consists of a cluster composed of numerous, vibrant medium green cubes ranging in size from just <1cm up to 2.6cm. Forms on these crystals are strictly cubes that display great luster and subtle growth hillocks on all of the faces. Without exception, each Fluorite cube displays a bright green core (some with or without small, billowy inclusions), succeeded by at least two thin green phantoms and then an outer zone of pale purple to produce the unique color blend of Okaruso Fluorite. Several crystals have slight corner dings including the largest one. Contacting on the bottom, back and sides from its extraction in the pocket. This sumptuous piece sits nicely on its own.
