Item Description

Very pretty, color-zoned, purple fluorite cubes are richly and aesthetically scattered on the sintered-looking, sturdy, sculptural, CABINET matrix on this very showy and excellent specimen from a BRAND NEW find at the famous Mina Ojuela. The fluorite cubes, to 8 mm, are transparent, highly lustrous and the crystal faces are lightly etched, giving the cubes a waxy luster. This excellent piece is essentially pristine, with only a minute amount of periphery wear. All of the cubes are pristine. The vivid purple color-zoning makes these highly attractive Mina Ojuela fluorites, that compare very favorably with those recovered from any era! This historic mine continues to amaze with new finds, such as the bi-pyramidal and psuedocubic wulfenite specimens. We were lucky to obtain a small lot in the last couple of months. One of the very best we received in the lot, with fine aesthetics and rich coverage.
