Distinctive green, lustrous, translucent fluorite octahedrons with frosted/etched faces are very aesthetically scattered on the sculptural quartz crystal matrix on this showy and excellent small cabinet combination from the famous William Wise Mine. Wise Mine fluorites have a bright glowing green color that is seldom matched in fluorites from anywhere else. The large octo on the left side is 2.7 cm and the octo on the right side is 1.6 cm. You barely notice, that part of the left edge of the large octo is cleaved and that the right octo has been reattached with blue mineral tack. Bright purple fluorescence, as you would expect. The piece displays beautifully without aid. Classic highly representative Wise Mine fluorite on quartz.
