Item Description

A very attractive, highly displayable, great quality, older Fluorite specimen from the famous pegmatite near Nagar. This attractive cabinet sized piece was mined in the mid 1990's, and is one of the better pieces of this material that we've offered in the auctions. It hosts a very gemmy, good-sized sharp, well-formed octahedral crystal measuring 4.1 cm well-defined, sharp faces aesthetically perched atop bladed silvery Muscovite matrix. The Fluorite crystal features a beautiful soft green color in the center, and transitions into a gentle pink hue on the edges. The Fluorite crystal is certainly gemmy enough to cut a good-sized clean gemstone. No major damage to speak of and the piece displayable from several angles. I don't have to tell you how the value of Nagar Fluorites has risen over the years, and this is a fantastic example of this classic material from this famous Pakistani locality. Priced at $5,000 retail. BETTER IN PERSON, hard to photograph.
