Absolutely gorgeous specimen of deep blue Fluorite cubes with Pyrite on sparkling drusy!

This specmen was part of the Emringer collection which came to market last year in Tucson. I acquired it as part of a trade and I am thrilled to be able to offer it as part of the Denver Show updates. The cubes are completely transparent with slightly darker phantoms near the center. They measure to 2.3 cm in side and display glassy, reflective faces. I only detect one small corner contact and a tiny cleave along the trimming edge. These are visually lost in the overall presentation and do not detract from the specimen. The cubes of Fluorite sit atop a sparkling druse covered matrix.
From the Le Burg Mine, Alban - Le Fraysse area, Tarn, Midi-Pyrénées, France.
Measures 6.3 cm by 7.7 cm by 5.4 cm in total size.
