SOLD Fluorite - spinel twins
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
2.8 x 1.4 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0
Pre Tucson

Killer thumbnail of multi color Fluorite in a flat and elongated spinel twin form. From the 2021 pocket on Hohenstein (Erongo, Namibia) which had a very special and unique look to many crystals, this is a perfect, complete and choice small wonder. The internal color play is very impressive in person, purple, green lighter violet and yellow to orange colors are zoned. The yellow-orange is a concentrated in a faden-like line that runs the length of the crystal. It is almost impossible to describe the crystal complexity, some faces are glass clear, these alternate with some frosted or etched faces. Looks fine from almost any angle and with backlight glows very well. We were able to select our specimens very early from the pocket contents and all were chosen with care for best quality, esthetics and interest. A few tiny crystals are scattered on one edge and are also spinel twins. This find is among the most important of the past few decades of Erongo Fluorite, the habit and quality are unlike anything else.
