Fluorite

Les Droites, Mont Blanc Massif, Chamonix, France

Here is an other curiosity from the Mont-Blanc mountains: the granit matrix is covered with complex pink fluorite crystals. Their crystallization looks like a second generation of octahedrons was growing on the first generation fluorites. A very unusual but beautiful example of pink fluorite. The tiny black spots are hematite flakes. It comes from the amazing find of C. Peray & S. Khayati in 2016. Size : 43 mm x 35 mm x 24 mm.

Ref. – FL046 – 330€
