Item Description

Gorgeous rich violet-purple color on these gemmy, very glassy and lustrous fluorite crystals aesthetically clustered on the sawed matrix covered with a starkly contrasting dense forest of water-clear needle quartz crystals. These have been called "Tanzanite Fluorite" for their beautiful purple color. Please note that there is no Tanzanite on the piece, the nickname is indicative of the color. The beautiful and sculptural isolated crystal cluster is 1.3 cm tall. The sharp cubes, to 1.5 cm, are strikingly enhanced by the modified dodecahedral corners. The fluorites are in great shape, overall, with only a cleaved face to the large crystal. These came out in a singular 2017 find, with none since. Get one while you can.
