Four or five incomplete Fluorite cubes are clustered to form this hand specimen. The largest measures about 1.6" (4 cm) along an edge and like another, shows minor damage on its most exposed corner. Their form is excellent, with well-defined edges and heavily-patterned but clean faces. All have a moderately deep violet color with a hint of red and a dull, waxy luster, and are dimly transparent at best. The crystals broke off of their base during their formation, and the breakage surfaces then healed slightly. There is no host rock present.
