A few intergrown, partial Fluorite cubes make up this small hand specimen. They measure up to 1.5" (3.8 cm) along an edge and are in very good condition, showing little damage. Their cubic form is also very good, and all have a violet-and-pale-yellow coloration that caused by phantom layering within each crystal. Their luster is greasy and all are transparent and dimly clear. Several tiny pyrite or chalcopyrite crystals are partly embedded in the natural surfaces of each crystal, and a few have been included. There is no host rock present.
