Description

Very rare and highly collectible specimen of Fluorite with Native Silver inclusions from Lavrion Greece! The Silver inclusions are clearly visible with the naked eye, Up to 1cm in length! Looking it more closely, it seems that the treelike Silver got placed on the surface of the first Fluorite growth and then got trapped in a secondary and final crystal growth, hence the purple Fluorite phantoms visible as well! Trully a rarity and a very special specimen! The Fluorite cluster by itself is quite beautiful with attractive colors and shape associated with calcite! It is the second one I see from this old find, the first one was crushed and analyzed.
