Individual exposed fluorite cubes on dolomite as perimorphose after calcite (pseudomorphose). The fluorites show a light honey yellow color and blue zonings along the edges. The dolomite perimorphose is unique for the mining area at Frohnau (Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany). Additionally, it should be mentioned that the piece comes from a unique fluorite find of this locality (alter Bäuerin Schacht, Bierschnabelsohle, BäuerinStehender): No fluorite has ever been found there before. No significant damage! The wonderful piece should be highly ranked because of its rarity!
