Description

This little floater is from a very limited find in the carinthian alps. The cleft produced some very fine specimens of fluorite in association with quartz. The specimen is developed as a floater and in very good condition. The crystals show a violet to green color and very interesting, stepped faces. This specimen was aquiered directly from the guy who found them. Only very very few specimens came on the market.
