Description

This is a specimen of the "blue pocket" at Clara Mine discovered in 1982. I was still 18 years old and couldn´t afford good specimens from the miners. Fluorites of this pocket were even in these days exceeding hard to get and expensive. Unfortunately most of the electric blue cubes lost their colour. 80% went into almost colourless with a hint of blue or grey. This cube is relatively colourful......! Not perfect but contrastful, sharp edged and well defined.
