Fluorite on Smoky Quartz with Microcline
Dreamtime claim, Crystal Peak, Teller County
5.5 x 3.3 x 2.1 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
Late Summer 2018
A classic Colorado pegmatite mineral from a relatively new find at the Dreamtime claim. Cubic deep purple Fluorites are perched on Smokey Quartz with some adhering Microcline. Esthetic presentation, this looks even better with backlight (we have not photographed this with backlight as that can be misleading). In person the Quartz is more transparent. A nice example of the Fluorites in this find very cool find.
