Many Fluorite cubes of various sizes make up a large part of this cabinet piece. The largest and most pronounced of these crystals measures about 1.1" (2.7 cm) along an edge and is in excellent condition, showing no appreciable damage. Its cubic form is very good, and though at least 4 of its corners seem to be cleaved off, these truncations are actually natural- one can see the crystalline patterns on their surfaces through a 10-power loupe. The smaller crystals are generally less than half the size of the larger and are in good condition, showing a paler green color than the large crystal. All are transparent and moderately to very clear, and have a dull pearly to waxy luster by which one can see a subtle patterning on their surfaces. I am not sure what the base rock is, but the piece is easily mostly Fluorite by weight. This specimen presents very well as a single green fluorite cube.
