Description

An exotic piece like from Thousand and One Nights: spherical orange fluorite on dark gray glossy sparkling chalcedony which gives a great contrast. Many small bright spherical fluorites on the chalcedony remind of a starry sky. Some small chalcedony crystals have a contact, which does not really distract from the beauty of this specimen at all. Nicely composed, lustrous and remarkable, this specimen is a true marvel!
