Description

The specimen is developed as floater, the base consists of tiny pink-lavender Fluorite crystals. The exposed main crystal shows the spinell-law-twinned habit. Only 3 localities world-wide produce this habit: Naica, Chumar Bakoor and Erongo. The crystal is water-clear, lustrous and sharp terminated and it features a light blue toning along some edges and also at one face. It is perfect allaround and looks great 360°, there is no backside, you can display it all around. In excellent condition damage-wise. When you look very carefully you can see some micro crystals of Pyrite at the base and some hairy inclusions inside the main crystal (this is an unidentified mineral)
