Poggio Balate, Termini Imerese, Palermo Prov., Sicily, Italy
Cabinet, 11.0 x 8.0 x 5.2 cm

A very three dimensional cluster of Italian Fluorite from Poggio Balate, Sicily featuring exceptionally sharp cubic crystals of an elegant sky blue Fluorite with contrasting white Fluorite matrix. The main cube resting atop the piece is 1.8 x 1.6 x 1.5 cm in size. The specimen exhibits multiple seams of Fluorite layered between the remaining pieces of matrix. The transparent, lustrous Fluorite cubes show stunning light blue phantoms with clear centers that act as a window to the matrix below. The piece is in great condition with only minor bruising on a couple of crystals. The blue hue varies depending on lighting but shows its most brilliant color under cool LED lights and purple fluorescence under UV light. A superb aesthetic piece with hills, valleys, and small pockets of this beautiful blue color!
