Description

What an exceptionally beautiful fluorite crystal cluster. The main octahedron shows an extremely cool colour duality from chlorinated green which then fades into one of the most desirable colours crystals can exhibit, an extremely deep satturated pink - almost appearing red when observed from different angles and sides. Additionally, this fantastic floating cluster has some smaller intergrown octahedrons of fluorite on top and at the base as well. Also there is no significant damage to the crystals.
