This is a really super fluorite example from this classic American locality. The fluorite crystals are a deep purple colour with rich  yellow undertones that are fabulous when backlit.

 

The scalenohedral calcite  crystals are a lovely adornment and accent the piece very well.

Lots of interesting growth patterns and plenty to keep you enthralled for hours.

 

I added this to my collection soon after Peter Seroka , who had a superb fluorite sub collection, dispersed it before he moved from Germany to the US.

There are breaks to the back and underside consistant with removal from host matrix.
