Description

Unusual, classic fluorite crystals cluster. The color is dark violet, with zones of green blue, and the faces show satiny luster. The reverse has several voids or casts, likely after dolomite, which is characteristic of this pocket, where fluorite was an overgrowth on dolomite, and the dolomite later etched away, leaving the original crystal forms. The base is cleaved, allowing the piece to display well. It is in excellent condition. These famous specimens were from a fluorite-filled, large Alpine cleft in limestone/dolomite marble, which is now a protected area. Specimen was Fund on ca. 2650 Meter. Condition is very good, but has two internal fracture.
