Description

Very nice specimen. Pale greenish blue fluorite phantom crystals with inclusions of sharp bournonite crystals + minor galena and chalcopyrite. We didn't manage to make better pictures of the bournonite crystals but they are really sharp and even show a little bit of the cogwheel habit.

The color of the fluorite is a bit different and clarity better in nature.
