Famous US classics! The crystals shows sharp termination, crazy texture with lot of amazing details and fine luster. The internal colors (photographed with very moderat backlight) are spectacular - the purple color shows a superb saturation and the also the yellow center is very intense. The dimension is remarkable - even for Minerva! The sides are mostly complete, the backside was partly extracted from the rock, partly healed. Gorgeous huge fluorite with stunning visual impact!
