Description

I used minor backlight for photography - the fluorite crystals shows dark purple color, but with minor backlight it shows a mosaique of yellow and light lavender tiles with a sharp tin dark framing. The faces consits of tiny squares and the hat of snowy white calcite scalenohedrons gives a great visual impact to this very aesthetic specimen! No significant damages to report, part of the backside/bottom was on the rock.
