Fluorite, Purple on Quartz
I especially like stand-alone crystals on matrix, and this Fluorite cube fits the bill. It is pristine, sharp, rich purple with a satiny luster on a nicely contrasting light-colored matrix. In addition to the featured cube, there are numerous miniature purple Fluorite cubes scattered throughout the piece. In excellent condition.
