Quartz, Fluorite

Quartz : SiO2, Fluorite : CaF2
minID: AWL-7CP

Dimensions: 38 mm x 50 mm x 32 mm

A very asethetic specimen featuring several partly gemmy Fluorite cubes, with yellowish centres and thin blue growth phantoms, giving an overall appearance of pale green colouration. The largest Fluorite crystal measures 19mm on its edge. Bordering the Fluorites are lustrous opaque white Quartz crystals, well formed elongate diverging crystals to 16mm in length. The crystal growth of the Fluorites is very interesting with unusual grooves through the cubes at differing angles where growth has been disrupted. Very asthetic specimen that displays well.

Size: 38mm x 50mm x 32mm
