Description

This is the probably best fluorite from this loclity I ever had - the color is superb. Please note: I didn´t use backlight, just photographed it under daylight. The main crystal is 41mm on edges, it is sharp terminated and faces are very glossy! Back to color: it is eletric blue with some green color-steps, dark blue zoning in the center and a thin violet zoning along the edges. And please note: photos don´t do justice to the piece - in person it is even much more impressive. No significant danages to report.
