A lovely sea-green Fluorite cube and a few other similarly colored Fluorites are cheerfully positioned upon a light colored, bubbly, drusy Quartz covered matrix. The big Fluorite, 3.3 x 2.9 x 2.8 cm, has a ghostly white cubic phantom at its core that has a fuzzy outline and has a thick, transparent, sea-green rim. The smaller Fluorites clustered on the opposing end are completely clear. The Fluorites rest on a blanket of tiny, 1 to 2 mm Quartz crystals that have a clear core and a milky-tan jacket that provides good contrast for the Fluorite crystals. The big, phantomed Fluorite on the tan matrix adds great character to this piece, making it a bit different from most others from this productive locality.
