Description

A fantastic piece from the "Knappenloch" - my new find from summer 2022. The crystal displays a beautiful violet color on the outside and a good blue to cyan color on the inside. This color build-up causes the fluorite to change color as the piece is moved. The fluorite measures about 3.8 cm at the edges. The crystal surfaces show a fine square texture with a silky luster due to water etching. The piece is etched or crystallized all around with beautiful structures - no new fresh damage. First, second, fourth and fifth photo with lowest LED backlight.
