An unusual color for Fluellite, this find was, I believe, the only well-defined violet crystals of the specie ever found. An open vug holding lots of small, perfect crystals of both species but mostly Fluellite. The find was late 90's vintage. Ex Charles Noll collection with a few additional previous labels, these were sold in 1999-2000 by Jordi Fabre (Barcelona, Spain) with none like this since.

A quite rare mineral not often seen for sale in esthetic specimens, this is a fine and rich specimen of Fluellite. The crystals are sharp, transparent and well formed colorless although a few have a slight yellow tinge. Balls of greenish Wavellite are present and a few other small needle crystals probably Minyulite but not verified. the crystals are in fine condition being protected in the central vug of this specimen.
