Description

Weisseck fluorite in finest quality. Most specimen show these amazing internal colors - but only a low number needs only minor backlight and show good quality of faces; pieces like the particular piece are limited, only 10% of all material showed this quality! The crystal shows the typical stepped faces, it wears a hut of tiny calcite crystals and the color is just breath-taking: there are steps of violet and blue, also blue-green zones - now camera can capture all these steps of colors, so I have to note that it is even better in person. The specimen is out of the personal collection of a memebr of the team who worked at the famous summit-cleft! No signficant damages to report, backside was on the rock.
