Item Description

A showy and excellent cluster of intergrown, translucent, "Blanchard-blue", fluorite cubes encircled by glassy, colorless quartz crystals from the famous Blanchard Mine of New Mexico. The cubes have nice purple edges and reach 1.5 cm. One cube has a cleaved corner, but its certainly not much of a detraction. Contemporary classic material.
