Item Description

A rare and showy combination specimen from Naica and the Dick Heck Collection. This is from the 1970s or early 1980s. Glassy, water-clear to translucent, pretty lavender, modified to etched, fluorite cubes are richly and attractively clustered atop the mounded matrix. Beautifully complimenting the fluorites are numerous striking pseudomorphs of sparkly, brassy, pyrite microcrystals after a flat pyrrhotite crystal plates. Sprays of milky quartz crystals are a nifty addtional accent. In great shape, overall, this fine combo is complete all-around and essentially pristine. Valued at $200 for fine quality and combination rarity. MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!
