Exceptional specimen of gemmy purple Fluorite in cluster!

Exceptional specimen of gemmy purple Fluorite in cluster.
I've been told that this is one of the finest Tule Mine Fluorites in the marketplace today and I can honestly say I've not seen a better example. This is a MAJOR Fluorite and it is in nearly pristine condition with only one small contact that is well hidden among all the stepped Fluorite faces which comprise the outer portion of each transparent cube. There are five cubes in total here, with the largest at top measuring some 6.5 cm in size, corner to corner. There is another cube just behind the top cube and the three remaining cubes are interlocked across the front. ALL are covered with dozens of smaller secondary faces that Fluorites from Tule are reknown for.

From the Tule Mine, Melchor Múzquiz, Mun. de Melchor Múzquiz, Coahuila, Mexico.
Measures 11 cm by 10.8 cm by 8.7 cm in total size.
