Fluorite and Calcite

WE 20-2, September 2019

Location:

Weisseck, Lungau, Salzburg, Austria

Description:

This piece shows a fluorite cube in combination with calcite and other fluorites. The calcite connects the individual fluorites that are tectonically broken. The face of the cube shows an intense square texture. Although the face is etched and shows clear crevices, the gloss is good. The specimen shows several colors under UV light: The outer violet layer fluoresces with the usual violet color and the colorless area of the fluorite (as far as the main part of the fluorite is concerned) shows colors from intense red-orange to pink and in between there are areas of lilac.

Size: 5.7 x 5 x 4.5 cm
