Item Description

An impressive and sculptural large two-way cluster of unique green fluorite octahedrons from this famous locale. A 6.5 cm octo with two striking offset terminations highlights one view. A fantastic zoned phantom dominates the interior of the 5.0 cm octo on the other end. The rich green gemmy, translucent crystals have satin luster faces, which adds much character. The phantom is very uncharacteristic of these fluorites. This is an excellent, uncommon and very showy large two-way example. Rich purple fluorescence. These are contemporary classics.
