Fluorite-
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
2.9 x 1.7 x 1.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $450
Spring update

For those who enjoy weird, rare forms. Bright green transparent Fluorites with an exotic structure. These have been called "rhombohedral" Fluorites and they do have that exact shape, even though a cubic crystal should not form like this. These are in fact spinel twinned Fluorites with elongation of the C axis, a distortion that makes this habit. This piece is a cluster of 3 small crystals and one larger all with the habit but the largest one is the center and shows the habit the best. A rare find in one pocket on Hohenstien we are told, that had just a few examples of this form. The color is a rich apple green and the condition is perfect too. Strong display for a small piece.
