Item Description

Pink fluorite from Chamonix is highly desired among all fluorite collectors, of course. But to those who have seen endless vresions of the same over the years, the 1998 Point Kurtz pocket material really set a new color standard! This is more red than pink, and it is an intense hue seldom seen in fluorite. The crystals, to 1.3 cm on edge, are all transparent and gemmy. The cluster is nearly a floater, with just a small attachment contact on one edge, but otherwise complete on front, back, and other sides. Specimens of this color and from this find are seldom seen on the market today. This is a fine, intense miniature, and should be valued about $2500
