Fluorite & Quartz - Kakamas, Orange River, South Africa
Fluorite and Quartz
Northern Cape Province
60 x 51 x 39mm 120gms
largest fluorite crystal is 29mm on the longest edge.
This specimen features vibrant grass green octahedral fluorite crystals nestled amongst white quartz crystals. Not all the crystals are complete, however its an attractive locality piece that I managed to acquire when this material was first discovered in the Kakamas region in early 2005. This was before the discoveries at the now more common Riemvasmaak locality.
