Fluorite

WE 1-19, 2001

Location:

Summit Cleft, Weisseck, Lungau, Salzburg, Austria

Description:

Three intergrown fluorite cubes with an edge length of up to 7.5 cm. The bottom cube is the largest and the top one is the smallest. The specimen was mined nearby the passage of clay and was etched by years of exposure to water. Usually these pieces break very quickly and larger pieces are difficult to recover. This piece survived because it is stabilized inside of the cube by two thin quartz plates. With backlit, the fluorite shows a very intense color from blue to purple.

Size: 9.5 x 9.5 x 6.2 cm
