Item Description

A showy and excellent, two-sided cluster of intergrown, translucent, "Blanchard-blue", fluorite cubes to 1.6 cm from the famous Blanchard Mine of New Mexico. The lightly frosted cubes have nice purple edges and the fluorite cluster is jauntily perched atop a mounded cluster of complimentary quartz crystals. The backlit photo highlights the translucency and color saturations, including the purple edges. The fluorites are pristine, except very trivial edgewear on only one crystal. Contemporary classic material.
