Deep green fluorite and muscovite on feldspar, associated with schorl tourmaline from the Erongo Mountain. The largest fluorite crystal is prominently and aestheticly placed on the specimen. There is a mineral, presumably pink orthoclase feldspar in the muscovite that fluoresces orange. There is some peripheral contact damage on the specimen but the flourite appears undamaged to the naked eye.
