Description

Large soft pink with a tint of light purple, gemmy, heavily modified fluorite crystals are aesthetically perched on lustrous, sugary adularia. Although not as deeply colored as some of the usual pink fluorite from the Alps, the transparency and complexity of the crystals is absolutely superb.

An excellent old-time Swiss pink fluorite!
