RM756   Fluorita

San Roque mine, Alumbres, Cartagena, Murcia, Spain

Group of interpenetrated cubic fluorite crystals with violet tones and delicate color zoning, transparence in some crystals, most being translucent. Characteristic for fluorite of this mine are the corroded faces. They are disposed on a matrix of iron oxides. What I also would like to emphisize of this piece is the mine from which it comes, near Alumbres in Cartagena, not well represented in collections.

Size: 6,4 x 4,5 x 3,3 cm.
Main crystal: 13 x 12 mm.

Fluorescent under long wave UV
