Item Description

An very unusual and excellent CABINET specimen from a recent find at the famous Okorusu of Namibia. This specimen amply demonstrates the unusual variety of colors and color combinations from this well-known locale. The very 3-dimensional surface is covered with lustrous, transparent to translucent, bi-colored, intensely stepped-growth faced fluorite cubes to 3.7 cm. The cubes have sea-green centers with variably shaded purple corners and edges. STRIKING! This showy piece is a curved crust of solid fluorite, with the inside of the crust being contacted, but damage-free. Pristine, only the edges have periphery wear. Choice, beautiful, large and uncommon material from this noted locale. Valued at $600-800. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!
