Unbelievable specimen with gas bubbles in a liquid in interjoined pale purple fluorite crystals (some interesting crystal shapes here!). First time I've seen this in fluorite. Also pyrite cubes included in fluorite. Plus glossy, brassy pyrite and beautiful, waterclear quartz crystals. A great and very unique specimen.
