Fluorite

Frohnau, Annaberg-Buchholz, Erzgebirge District, Saxony, Germany

Size 4.2x3x1.9cm

Price £65



Dozens of gemmy yellow fluorite cubes reaching 5mm across cover the top of the specimen, on a thin matrix of translucent, frosted crystalline quartz. Some microcrystals of chalcopyrite are scattered over and enclosed within the fluorite. The fluorite cubes spill over to the back of the specimen as well, contacting nicely with the matrix. Contacted at the edges and some minor nicks to crystal corners, but generally in very good condition. Excellent colour and lustre, a bright and eye catching miniature from this famous locality.
