Fluorite on Celestine (stepped cubes)
Tule Mine, Melchor Muzaquiz
Coahuila, Mexico
6.3 x 5 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
Spring 2013

Two very gemmy, zoned purple crystals are perched attractively on a contrasting celestine. An older example from the ccollection of Larry White. The Fluorites are exceptionally sharp, clear and show the classic stepping that is the signature of this now classic location. As a bonus the Fluorites are sprinkled with sparkling clear to amber colored calcites. The dark edge zoning is especially pronounced and the specimen is far better than typical. The display side of this is very clean damage wise, the only cleaves are on the backside that are not visible when displayed.
