Fluorite

Description Tabs

Description
Locality: 
Stubnerkogel, Gastein Valley, Salzburg, Austria
Class: 
Crystals on Matrix
Size Range: 
Small cabinet (7-10 cm)
Size: 
7.4 × 4.9 × 4.5 cm
Description

The crystal is 26mm across. This material is from a recent discovery, which is  published in the Lapis issue Jg. 42 Nr.10 Okt. 2017. This particular specimen shows very attractive apple-green color. And the faces of the fluorite octahedrons show a special feature: The slightly shining and smooth crystals are partly covered with a second layer. This rare kind of crystallization is well visible on my images. The assemble is very aesthetic with exposed main crystals at the top of the piece.
