Description:Two, intergrown, lustrous and translucent, emerald-green fluorite octahedrons with purple highlights, 4.1 x 4.0 cm across are dramatically attached to the side of a tapered smoky quartz crystal preferentially coated with drusy hyalite opal. The large, glassy, sharply terminated smoky is complete all-around pristine and is included with numerous schorl needles to 2.0 cm. This is a doubly terminated crystal, as the basal termination is broken and is mostly rehealed. Yellow muscovite is embedded on this base and a lower side. Nearly pristine, with only trivial brusing to the edge of one fluorite octo. An outstanding, showy and uncommon large combination specimen from the Erongos and the Charlie Key dealer stock. Valued at $1000-1200. SUPER lime-green fluorescence under short wave for the opal and purple fluorescence under long wave for the fluorite!
