Item Description

Enchanting cluster of GEMMY, deep-purple Fluorite crystals, set on a plate of Quartz, from China. The Fluorites have a superb, glassy luster, and the beveled edges add a great deal of visual interest. Ranging up to 9 mm, the Fluorites are so reflective and well-formed they look as if a talented glass artist decided to make a grape-like cluster out of cut and polished glass - they are THAT sharp. The small amount of wear on just a few of the Fluorites has no effect on the fine aesthetics.
