Description

The fluorite crystal is complete all around, the faces are stepped and consists of uncountable tiny faces, really an amazing texture. The saturation is very good for the locality - most fluorites are very light and color seems to be washed out. But not so here, the color is intense pink. Also the dimension is very inpressive and the assemble with a free-standing complete crystal on a small base of muscovite looks very attractive. No significant damages to report.
