Item Description

A terrific mounded example of the gorgeous apple-green, translucent octahedrons of fluorite from Grant County that have a look all their own. They have a smooth, melty-looking surface, and yet form well-defined octahedrons. The large octohedron on top is 2.5 cm. Complete all-around, with only very trivial peripherywear. The base has been sawed to enhance the display quality. They really light up and glow a beautiful green color under good light!
