A very atteractive specimen, this piece consists of dozens of golden Fluorite crystals whose combined formation has an almost stalactitic appearance. All are in excellent condition, as only a few spots of minor damage are visible. The crystals measure a maximum of 0.4" (1.0 cm) along an edge, have the classic cubic form, and are heavily intergrown. They have well-defined edges and smooth faces that show a bright, vitreous luster. Their color is a rather unusual golden tint and they are transparent and very clear, so that one can see several rusty inclusions that are scattered within. There are a few small patches of colorful chalcopyrite and several small, white dolomite rhombohedrons (most of which are damaged) scattered on the specimen, and only a very small amount of a brown host rock.
