Description

New material from a recent small discovery at Sicily. New discovereis from large mining areas in China, Africa or US are not really a surprise - but a these new fluorites from an small island, hand-extracted, not from an industrial mine is really an exceptional and relevant discovery! The particular specimen is a well formed cluster with 3 large main crystals up to 36mm one edges. They show sky-blue color, sharp termination and satiny luster. The assemble looks very aesthetic! No significant damages to report.
