Description

Superb group of octahedral green fluorite of good lustre, on a matrix of white quartz. The group is in perfect condition, with no damages!. It forms a flattened stalactite-like aggregate that can be exposed all around 360°. The crystals reach 18 mm in size, but most range from 10 to 12 mm, and some are rich in tinny metallic inclusions, probably sulphides.

Acquired in 2004, it is an Ex. Willy Israel specimen.
