Fluorite - modified and aligned cubo-octahedral crystals
Orange River, Namakwa
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
2.9 x 2.2 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160


Dark purple Fluorite crystals that are translucent to transparent in strong lighting. A somewhat unusual locality better known for the red and orange Quartz crystals this is a nice example of this habit. The crystals are edge-modified cubes (cubo-octahedral) aligned with each other. There is no matrix except Flourite which has tiny stepped voids in the flat surfaces. The back and one side are incomplete, the front facing (display face) side is in fine undamaged condition.
