Description

Large - and for the locality uncommon sharp - scalenohedrons of highly lsutrous dark purple fluorite. The first photo was done with moderately backlight - the fluorite seems to glow and the contrast with yellow calcite is really fantastic. The other images show the specimen under daylight condition. The quality and the high luster of the fluorite s exceptional for the entire region and came only from this one cleft.
