A thin septa of sparkling, colorless, quartz druse has allowed crystals of frosted, translucent, sea foam green, fluorite octahedrons, to form above and below the plate. Very 3-dimensional! Average crystal size is 1.0 cm across but the cluster atop is about 3 cm. Under fluorescent light, the fluorite is an intense, neon purple. Very aesthetic specimen, elegant, and rich with this new fluorite.
