Description

It was only one discovery that produce this amazing fluorite. The fluorite vein goes down in the underground and it would need decades of errosion or industrial mining to follow the fluorite vein - so all material from this locality is from only one exceptional find! The fluorite crystals show an incredible, strong blue-green color, which is an excellent contrast matrix. Most material were single crystals, so this small piece with matrix and the most amazing color from the discovery represents this material in the very best way.
