Item Description

A showy and excellent cluster of sharp fluorite octahedrons from the recent, very highly touted finds at Riemvasmaak, South Africa. The gemmy and lustrous, unique grass-green fluorite octahedrons are aesthetically stacked and clustered. The largest octo is 3.2 cm. All of the many terminations on this cuite are pristine. The color is INTENSE, deep green, very nice! Mark my words, these are contemporary classics. MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!!! SOMEDAY, we will look back on these the way we do now for Illinois fluorites of 10-20 years ago even, and wonder why they were so darned cheap, mark my words.
