Early summer 2021
Very unusual, highly etched yellow Fluorite from a little known locality in the Erongo Region of Namibia. This was from a small find of just 6 pieces, all with good yellow color (unusual in Namibia) that have been etched into spires. This piece and all the others are nearly pure Fluorite but with a thin band of crystalline Quartz that is the base. We have been hoping to obtain more of these odd Fluorites but nothing else of this sort has been produced. A very different looking (and oddly attractive) piece that will not be like anything else in a Fluorite suite.
