Description

A very eye-catching floater from a small recent discovery at Erongo Mountains. The "matrix" is a well formed snowy white feldspat. On it a diagonal quartz crystal and minor siderite. In the middle you can see a modified very translucent fluorite crystals - it shows light blue-green color with minor dark violet zoning. It really looks very aeshetic in various positions. No significant damages to report.
