An essentially colorless Fluorite with octahedral gem crystals showing inclusions of Galena and other sulfides, from Naica, Mexico. This glassy Fluorite "pyramid" exhibits triangular-shaped growth hillocks on its faces, very interesting! The most prominent of the included galena crystals is complete and sharp, and is a nearly 1cm, cuboctahedral Galena inclusion that is very near the surface. There is a tiny cavity extending from the surface of the Fluorite onto the Galena crystal that contains tiny, translucent, yellow-orange, mounded crystals (unknown) and pale pink-tan, prismatic crystals that may be Calcite/Aragonite?). Mostly complete with contacting on two sides and at the bottom and a ding on one edge. Attractive AND interesting!
