Description

There is no doubt that Swiss Pink Fluorites on Smoky Quartz are the holy grail of all Fluorite collectors. And this is a super aesthetich specimen, great displayable from every side. It is a superb, colourful and also contrastful 360° specimen. Numerous of excellent defined  cuboctahedrons of pink fluorite perfectly perched on two doubly terminated, partly gemmy, high lustrous and medium brown coloured crystals of smoky quartz. The fluorite is sharp edged and lustrous as well. So far I can see, there are no imperfections from either side . This exquisite specimen satifies the highest demands in terms of rarity and aesthetics.
