Fluorite -etched pink with green core
Penas Blancas, Bourbur
Boyaca, Colombia
4.4 x 4.3 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $330
Spring 2017

A really attractive and different sort of Fluorite. The Emerald mining area at Penas Blancas has produced a very small number of highly etched Fluorites over the past 2 decades. Most are cubes a a few are Octahedra, most are colorless and a few are pink. These are usually very deeply etched and re-crystallized and sometime have emerald green globs in the center or corner of the crystal. This is a pink corner of an octrahedron that is naturally etched and has a nice green spot in the center. Gemmy enough to be faceted, this unusual habit is I belive only in a small prospect about 250 meters higher above than the Penas Blancas Emerald zone. A very good example of a rare form.
