Fluorite

WE 19-1, 2019

Location:

Weisseck, Lungau, Salzburg, Austria

Description:

This is perhaps the most beautiful piece of this find. The fluorite cubes reach an edge length of up to 3.5 cm with plastic growth. Its faces go from shiny to semi-glossy, show an intense square texture (we call this parquet construction) and a step construction on the edges. Most impressive, however, is the transparent color, which changes from intense aquarium blue to aquarium blue-green depending on the daylight. On the back of the fluorite is limestone. Due to the transparency you can see the limestone through the fluorite.

Size: 10.5 x 9 x 5.3 cm
