Item Description

Sharp and dramatic pseudomorph of Fluorite after Mica. It is very sharp, and has retained the elongated hexagonal book shape very well. Remarkably, it also has a terrific wine-red gemminess. A great pseudo that I have NOT seen from anywhere before (has anybody else? let me know, please?). This piece is a complete crystal, doubly terminated, but repaired in the middle.
