Item Description

An aesthetic, two-sided, quartz rib with fluorites from the recent, very highly touted finds at Riemvasmaak, South Africa. Two, very gemmy and lustrous, unique grass-green fluorite octahedrons are dramatically set at the end of the two-sided, quartz-covered rib. The largest octo is 2.9 cm. The two fluorites are pristine, with the rest of the piece having only periphery wear. This fine piece has dramatic quality. Mark my words, these are contemporary classics. The color is INTENSE, deep green, very impressive on this piece! MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!!!
