Item Description

A showy and excellent plate 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 shaped and looks like Africa in the vertical! The largest octo is 3.5 cm and some faces have striking preferential growth or etching, giving a wonderful sculptural look. All of the many terminations on this fine piece 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. Pristine. Valued at $1000.
