WE 21-9, July 2021
Summit Cleft, Weisseck, Lungau, Salzburg, Austria
In its front view, this fluorite shows a dark blue-green color with a high-gloss surface. Backlighting makes the color lighter, and not particularly exciting. But when looked at from the side, the fluorite reveals a very intense color zoning when backlit. I have never before seen this type of coloring from the Summit Cleft. The shades of blue and especially the cyan are unusually intense. I was overwhelmed when I first saw this play of colors!
