Here is a highly aesthetic fluorite & quartz combo from Dalnegorsk, Russia. The matrix has a bed of fine, pale-green, prasem quartz crystals. Perched atop the quartz is a cluster of 6 intergrown fluorite crystals, and there is one additional fluorite cube off to the right side. The fluorite cubes are up to 2.5cm long, and are completely colorless which is a defining characteristic of Dalnegorsk fluorites. This is fluorite in it's purest form of Calcium Fluoride - the lack of impurities is why it is so clear and colorless. Some of the crystals have a milky white translucency to them while others are clear as glass. Also among the quartz crystal are some unidentified black mineral crystals.

The specimen comes with a custom acrylic display base.
