Description

Very rare and unique combination of fluorite with blue crystals of aurichalcite with a whitish spherical crystallized aggregate of calcite. I have to note that a few aurichalcite needles might come off during transit. This is will not be taken as damage worthy of a refund as long as most it remains intact. On request, I can have it stabilized (free of charge) before shipping with a 2-3 days delay until the procedure is complete.
