Description

This specimen comes from the less known locality in Carinthia. The pocket of green octahedral fluorite with needle quartz crystals was found by dedicated mineral collector Rudolf Hasler from Bleiberg. Interesting in this pocket are purple edges of octahedra that are due to zoned coloration of cube faces in the second stage of growth. Narrow edges of octahedra are rhombic dodecahedral faces that are commonly present on these crystals. Long prismatic quartz is present on all specimens.
