Poggio Balate, Termini Imerese, Palermo Prov., Sicily, Italy
Miniature, 3.9 x 2.9 x 2.1 cm

Superb transparent GEM blue Fluorite cubes up to 1.6 cm in size with a white inner core and external blue phantoms. The color varies depending on light source but ranges from a cobalt blue to a dazzling celestial blue. Based on the exquisite color, a first guess on this locale might be France but it is actually Sicily, Italy from around 2019-2020 finds. The piece is in great condition with some edge bruising on the lower front cube and contacting along the back. The specimen has a wonderful purple fluorescence under UV light. Very few from the lot are as gemmy and transparent from all sides as this piece.
