Here is a really unique and beautiful Spanish Fluorite! The bulk of the specimen consists of blue-purple fluorite cubes up to 2.2" wide, and towards the bottom there is an orange inclusion (probably iron) which complements the blue-purple color quite nicely. What makes this specimen really stand out, however, is the enormous 4" wide Calcite crystal sitting on top of it! It looks like a snow capped fluorite mountain. The specimen appears to be a floater in that it is crystallized all around. It looks like the primary structure broke off of the matrix where it grew, and then more crystals continued to grow on the backside where it was contacted. The back has small fluorite cubes and another white calcite crystal. The condition is quite excellent for a piece this size. Almost every area that ever had any damage has recrystallized, and there is really only one small impact mark on it anywhere that we can see. 

This specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
