Alexander Ferri's Photo Gallery


Camissinone Mine, Zogno, Brembana Valley, Bergamo Province, Lombardy, Italy

Dimensions: 161 mm x 85 mm x 114 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 63 mm

Fluorite on Quartz

The white to light grey limestone matrix is covered by tiny Quartz crystals. Set in the center you can see a large (63mm across) modified, isolated main crystal. All stepped faces and edges are sharp terminated. The faces are etched and the crystal shows a very dark violet (nearly purple) internal color. Contrast and ensemble are amazingly delicate. What is special about this specimen: it is on a matrix, most crystals larger than 2 or 3 cm are not on matrix. Second point is the dimension – all larger than 3 cm in very good. Third point: it´s an isolated crystal, most are inter grown groups. The specimen is from Pezotta´s find last season. And among the top 10 of what he found.
