Description

For decades the only minerals which sometimes came on the market from entire Ireland were some unimportant Quartz and Calcite samples. Ireland seems to own really NONE relevant mineral specimen. Until the discovery in Larkins Quarry. A few years ago a first important discovery was done - it was really a sensation. For decades; for centuries there was not even one important discovery in Ireland and then these amazing fluorites were found - intense, dark purple crystals came out; cubes with additional modifications of rhomb and even wih lustrous faces. Now I was able to acquire some finest new specimen from a recent discovery. And now look at this spectacular piece: a Modified dark purple crystal with stepped edges and octahedral phantoms. Really an eye-catching rarity!
