This hand specimen contains two colors of fluorite. In a protected cavity are fine crystals of transparent green fluorite. On much of the rest of the specimen, including the cut base, is a mass of purple fluorite, mostly very damaged but with enough good crystals to verify their cubic habit. All of the fluorite fluoresces a bright purple under long-wave ultraviolet light. There are other minerals present as well, probably including barite and calcite.
