Description

The perfect combination: at the bottom you can see a small base of sharp terminated tiny quartz crystals. On it a well developed baryte rose and finally a group of sharp terminated fluorite cubes. They are glossy and show intense purple color. The last photo in the gallery shows a close-up of the fluorites to give you an idea of the zoning and the modification along the edges. All minerals are in finest quality and the assemble is aesthetic as it ever could be. No significant damages to report.
