Simply superb green Peruvian Fluorite highlighted by bright Pyrite crystals. A pair of lustrous, gemmy to translucent, sea-green, octahedrons of Fluorite have intersected at almost right angles and display barely perceptible triangular patterns developed on their faces that creates a shimmering effect with any lighting. This twinkling is emphasized by the contrasting little groups of 1 to 3mm, bright brassy yellow Pyrite crystals, especially those located at the convergence of the two Fluorites. What an attractive little miniature combo! Unusual for Peru, or anywhere for that matter. From an old collection.
