Until these lustrous, translucent, pink fluorites were discovered in Mexico, Peru and the Alps were the only sources for pink fluorite, and the cost of a specimen such as this was (and still is) astronomical from those localities. These octahedrons measure up to 2.0 cm on the diagonal, and have vivid, deep pink color against the beautifully contrasting white matrix. An EXCELLENT, sculptural plate, beautifully accented by the bit of white matrix next to the large octo. Pristine, except for the trivial periphery wear.
