Description

Bright yellow, transparent fluorite of “Bergmännisch Glück (Erzgebirge)”with excellent texture on the faces. The beautiful faces show a square structure with a very lively texture! This was caused by a bright colored surface layer. Individual matte-shining chalcopyrite are an additional enrichment. With backlit, the fluorite shows a honey-yellow transparency color with a darker zoning along the edges and a light blue zoning in the deeper zone of the fluorite. The specimen is big and heavy (1121 gram)! A very aesthetic and lively piece!
