Item Description

A classic and beautiful, sharply color-zoned, purple fluorite cube aesthetically accented with a lustrous, colorless, calcite scalenohedron from the famous Minerva #1 Mine of South Illinois. The nifty, lustrous, stepped-growth faces are entrancing. Complete all-around, the edges are pristine, and the modest contacting on one lower corner is certainly not a detraction. The crystal has STRIKING, two-toned, white and purple, fluorescence!
