Description

Stunning single octahedra of pink Fluorite set on a bit of matrix from a classic locale in the Alps.

The Fluo shows an excellent color, luster and translucency.

Edges in pretty good conditions.

There is a spot in the lower portion of the crystals where probably a crystal of quartz grown in contact with the Fluo is now missing (see pctures). To me, not detracting at all.

Showy!
