Description

This very tri-dimensional piece is covered with micro-crystals of Quartz. On it you can see several Fluorite crystals - the largest ones (both with 20mm on edges) are set at the top of the piece. They show an intense blue zoning along all edges and strong yellow centers. These colors are really exceptional and remind more to Illinois than to Germany. The faces show lustrous areas at corners and along the edges - to the centers they are a little bit frosted. It is in good condition, but not perfect and really acceptable for a piece of this rarity and relevance. Also here an old label is included - at the backside you can see a notice from 1908, I just cannot say if this was the year of purchase or of discovery.
