Fluorite - spinel twins and chain growths
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
9.3 x 4.2 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $550


A crazy unusual Fluorite that has an incredible odd crystallization. The whole piece is a mixture of slightly twisting "strands" of linked chain-like growths of crystals that looks "melted". Some of the strands host larger, textbook examples of spinel-twinned Fluorites some of which are color zoned. The whole mass is transparent to translucent, and when backlit is a mixture of purple, green and yellowish colors. This was found on the Hohenstein Massif in Erongo in 2017, part of a small pocket of very strange yet beautiful(to me, at least) Fluorites. This is a complex specimen, interesting from most any angle, very hard to describe but for any lover of Fluorite this is a amazing piece.
