At least 30 Fluorite cubes rest on the calcareous base of this hand specimen. These crystals do not generally exceed 0.4" (1.0 cm) in diameter and are in very good condition- only a small number show any fresh damage. Their cubic form is excellent and all have a pale blue color and a dull, waxy luster. They are also transparent and quite clear. Many of them are intergrown into a cluster that is adjacent to a single, large tabular calcite that is rather rounded. The base itself is made up of calcite or limestone and is encrusted with countless tiny calcite "dogtooth" crystals.
