Fluorite is loved for its ability to exhibit nearly every color and form in gemlike, geometric crystals. This is a prime example with modified cubo-octahedral crystals with glasslike luster and translucence.
The crystals have areas of deep, grape jelly purple, as well as colorlessness. They’ve formed on a matrix (host rock) of metallic pyrrhotite crystals.
The pyrrhotite has formed in thin, hexagonal plates that have stacked in a dense, wave-like structure. Notably, the fluorites have nice isolation against the pyrrhotite, allowing us to enjoy their gemlike forms.
Dramatic and sculpturesque, this piece combines two unexpected species in one artistic specimen.
