A very aesthetic thumbnail! The crystal shows remarkable quality for the locality - color is much better as usual and also teh faces are in remarkable quality - they are glossy and nearly all other material there is etched, discoveries and clefts with sharp terminated and glossy crystals from Göschener Alp are exceptional! This specimen is from a small find in summer 2017, this was the maximum size of fluorite crystals from this cleft. No significant damages to report.
