Fluorite with Calcite
Orismuhle Quarry, Seltisberg, Liestal
7.3 x 3.8 x 3 CM (cabinet)
new year 2021
Not often available for sale, especially outside of Europe, this is a choice specimen from the Orismuhle Quarry in Liestal, Switzerland. The Fluorites are sharp honey-yellow to orange cubes. The Fluorites are set among sharp scalenohedral Calcite crystals that add a good contrast. In good condition overall the largest cube is 1.3 CM across diagonally. The specimen is well trimmed section of a vug that has preserved most of crystals inside well. Excellent addition to a serious world Fluorite suite and certainly unlike most well-known Swiss Fluorites.
