Description

An elegant geode featuring several dozens of pale purple fluorite cubes intimately interconnected. Lavrion fluorite displays a rather rough surface, with medium transparency, and this is a good example of it. The specimen has been mildly treated to remove iron oxides.
Rich, in good conditions, with minor peripheral contacts. From a rather limited find at the Barbara mines a few years ago.
