Description

A water-clear part of fluorite, the top is (re-)crystallized, the bottom is a cleavage face.

For Harz mountains, a very rare and intensive pink color.

The origin of this collection was bought from the RWTH University, Aachen, Germany in 1952 by H. Köhler's father (an exception likely due to war damages, usually the german universities don't sell anything out of their collections). All the specimens of this collection are quite old, dated between 1870 and 1930. H. Köhler inherited the collection in 1960 and sold it recently.
