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.
