Description

Usually fluorites from lake Rieding show just a pale green color and dull faces - not so here, the faces are really glossy - this is absolutely exceptional for the entire area! Also the color is very uncommon - light along the edges with some lavender internal zoning. The crystals are free-standing and show a very attractive contrast to matrix. Material from the locality is sevral decades old - today it is a nature park and field-collectiing is prohibited. No significant damages to report.
