Description

Purple fluorite crystals with phantoms, brown, platy siderite crystals and minor pyrite on a large milky quartz crystal with silky luster. An exceptional and rare specimen from a famous, sought after locality. An exciting combination - rare to find and sought after. In spite of a contact zone on the length of the milky quartz crystal it displays very well. Comes with an old label of collector Hans Weber with another label which might be from the collector Werner Klicker.
