Fluorite included with Chlorite
Thumbnail, 2.4 x 2.1 x 1.4 cm
Les Droites, nr. Chamonix, Dept. de Haute-Savoire, France

The fluorites from the European Alps have long been considered some of the best fluorite in the world and are highly sought after by collectors. This thumbnail cluster is unusual as it is almost entirely included with chlorite, giving it a matte forest-green color. A small contact on the backside reveals a light pink interior. A unique and desirable thumbnail from a premier fluorite locality!
