Description

This beautiful piece hosts a group of deep blue-purple cuboctahedral fluorite crystals. The crystals are sharp, glassy and have excellent transparency.¬†This specimen is from the 2017 find that hosted this particular hue of fluorite (some have called it ‘”tanzanite fluorite”). In excellent condition, one small incomplete crystal, right side – the rest of the crystals are superb. Stands perfectly for display as photographed.

The hue of these fluorite crystals varies depending on the light source – with LED lights they are a cold blue-purple, with halogen a warmer, more violet-purple hue, and in daylight colour temperature (shown) similar to the LED blue-purple colour.

A wonderful fluorite miniature.
