Description

First of all I have to mention that this specimen is much better in person! The crystals show excellent luster, termination is razor-sharp and clarity is also very fine. On my detail photos you can see sharp phantoms. It is always hard to capture clarity with the camera - what looks like a light center is the matrix undernath the fluorite crystals. One more important indicator is the condition of the specimen, which shows no damages, accept it was on the rock. The large main crystals is complete and sharp also backside and undamged. All these intergrown crystals are on high quality. There was much quantity from this mine, but the quality of this particular specimen stands out of the crowd.
