Dimensions: 12.5 cm x 12.5 cm x 6 cm

This fine, sky blue, transparent, fluorite specimen has deep purple centers, which give it an ethereal quality because they look phantomlike tucked back behind so much blue zoning. This is a great display piece of an increasingly rare American classic! The largest crystal measures 6 cm across. It also fluoresces a deep, rich purple color. The label indicates that this piece was mined in 1981. NOTE: NOT ZINN . FROM THE TOM WIESNER FLUORITE COLLECTION (a major Illinois stash), part of which i got at the same time 12.5 x 12.5 x 6 cm
