A super clear, nearly colorless (with a very slight tinge of purple) cluster of two elongated cubes. The crystals are in epitaxial orientation as well. The Fluorites from Llamas are almost always beveled on the edges and often elongated, sometimes on two different axis as is this one. No matrix at all, the back and underside were contacted and recrystallized, and one old cleavage break has also had some regrowth. The facing side for display is almost air clear, sharp and lustrous. A very good example of this small but impressive locality.
