Erongo Mountains, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 7.7 x 7.4 x 5.8 cm
From Namibia now...Only a handful of these so-called "alien-fluorites" came out of the ground, sometime starting last april and extending to another pocket found just before September I am told. However, very few large crystal specimens showed so nicely and in such size as this one, with 3 "alien" phantom faces able to show off at the same time. I had many I sold at the Denver and Munich show already, saving back this one for the web to get a shot, though. It is one of the most impactful fluorite crystals I have ever seen for sheer bizarreness. The color, pattern, and geometry combine to create a startling overall appearance. This crystal is nearly pristine (a few minor dings of no consequence) and is technically complete all around as the back shows a contact/attachment point and no breaks per se. Comes with custom carved lucite base for display. This piece was photographed for show reports.
