Item Description

A beautiful and notably colorful Fluorite from Peru. This small cabinet piece host numerous, gemmy to translucent, rich sea-green, octahedrons of Fluorite measuring up to 1.8 cm, with minor Pyrite and Quartz on the base. The Fluorites are dominated by octahedral forms with only some minor cube faces developed on some crystals. The Fluorites are rather gemmy when backlit, and they GLOW with color. You don't see Fluorites with such great saturated color from Peru typically. This is a great looking piece that sits well on its own for display, with startling color from any Fluorite locality - let alone, for Peru. From a 2020 pocket. Priced at $2,200 in the inventory.
