Numerous sea-green Fluorite crystals and glistening little Pyrites dominate this colorful miniature from Cerro de Pasco. There are a few dozen, well-formed, 2 to 5 mm, gemmy, sea-green, octahedral Fluorite crystals clustered on this piece sitting on a matrix of fine-grained Quartz and Pyrite. The Pyrite crystals are 1 to 2 mm in size and just scintillate. There are a couple of 2 to 4 mm brown-red Sphalerite crystals on the piece as well near the bottom. It's an attractive miniature combination piece! It seems to be a floater, and it looks like nothing as much as a combo of green and white sugar off a candy tray. It is sparkly and pretty. Nothing is big here in terms of crystal size and yet it has a visual impact...the piece is simply notable for sparkle and uniqueness.
