Item Description

Fine purple-zoned, cuboctahedral fluorite is perched on a beautiful cluster of lustrous dolomite and quartz. The crystal is 2.5 cm across. The dolomites have a porcelain-like look to them. This piece is 3-dimensional and complete, all around. Purple crystals in this pocket were few and far between, it seems. This is from a pocket found at the end of 2008.
