When you first look at this fluorite specimen in regular ambient lighting it appears to be a very nice dark purple cluster of fluorite cubes. However, as soon as you shine light on it the phantoms are revealed along with some chalcopyrite and calcite crystals. The core is yellow with various zones of purple. It is very difficult to photograph this specimen without the backlight because it is such a dark purple. Shining light on the front to illuminate it makes it look a bit chalky, but in reality, it's just a clean, dark fluorite cluster, so whether you backlight it or not it's an excellent specimen!

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
