At least 30 Fluorite cubes rest on the sphalerite base of this cabinet specimen. These cubes are in moderately good condition, as several of them are damaged, and measure up to 0.5" (1.3 cm) along an edge. Their form is very good- all edges are well-defined and all faces are faintly patterned but clean. They have a very pale violet color and a dull pearly luster and are transparent and dimly to moderately clear. The sphalerite base is crystalline, and several intergrown, partial crystals protrude around the Fluorites.
