Description
What's a hard to see in a 2D photo is that inside this glassy-clear, pale blue flurorite crystal is a smaller darker purple crystal. This phantom fluorite sits on a bed of muscovite, and between the two fluorite zones are some white "dots" which may be barite, but it's difficult to say for sure.
