Museum quality purple / blue tetrahedral fluorite specimen.

Details: Museum quality purple / blue tetrahedral fluorite crystals on a white quartz matrix. The contrast of the matrix with a nearly perfect flush of crystals across the entire specimen provides an incredible esthic quality. The specimen is also thin enough to transmit light from back to front. Several generations of fluorite and quartz appear to have intergrown. A specimen of this quality and size, so free of damage, is rare.

Locality: Shangxii, China.

Size: 24.8" by 21.7" x 3", Weight: 63.8 lbs.
