This is a very special Berbes fluorite specimen, and the photos really don't do it justice. It's one of those "Wow!" specimens when you see it in person. For starters, it's large, and the purple fluorite has great aestehtics with how it's placed on the white quartz matrix. But what makes this one so special is the fluorite crystal structure. It's hard to tell, but the underlying form is of 5 or 6 large fluorite cubes, but the faces of each cube have spawned off hundreds of "cityscape" child cubes. The result is a very "3D" mineral specimen with incredible texture, and the way it plays with light is just amazing. The condition is excellent with only one noticeable corner ding on one of the fluorite cubes. Most people have to search to even find it. Other than that it is a remarkably clean specimen with the usual trimming areas on the back, bottom and some edges. This is one of the most interesting if not *the* most interesting Berbes specimens we've seen in years.
