Description

This discovery was really amazing - on a small island with hundreds of years of mining tradition something completely new was discovered - these blue fluorites came in 2018. But only a few of them showed this truely superb color. And most peices were just clusters and not really aesthetic. So exposed crystals on matrix in the very best color were really the exception!
