Description

This interesting form is typical for the location of Zogno (Italy): a beautiful dark and etched fluorite with lustrous faces. With backlit the fluorite shows its true beautiful color: a very intensive purple color with a dark center. No significant damage to report; the backside is also slightly etched or healed (no fresh fractures). First and second, fourth, and fifth photo with LED light as backlit, much better in person!
