#1009 / FLUORITE - India
Locality: Mahodari Quarry, Nasik, Maharashtra, India
Size: 9.5 x 7.5 x 4.2 cm.
A botryoidal yellow Fluorite on a matrix of terminated Quartz crystals. The Fluorite is 5.8 cm across and is the largest well shaped Fluorite that I have yet to come across. It is perfectly
centered on the Quartz crystals and is complete all around. It is a bit yellower in color than it appears in these photos. The surface is completely natural, unlike many of these that have been scraped with a wire brush to remove surface encrustations.
This is an exceptional Fluorite of unusual size and quality that has been in my personal collection since 2010.
