Description

Huge outstanding specimen from new finds at the Bergmännisch Glück mine. Really impressive: dark purple fluorite crystals up to 4.6 cm edge length with a brownish orange core. The specimen is beset with brassy pyrite crystals. Between those you can see some small, transparent baryte crystals. Backlight makes the internal orange correspondent nicely with the outer purple.

The only fault I can see is a small clean broken edge at one of the fluorite crystals. But this doesn't show at all.

One of the most spectacular fluorite specimens we handled so far.

Overseas customers please be aware of much higher shipping costs because of customs handling papers and insurance.
