Fluorite - sold

Steinbruch (quarry) Mauterndorf, Twenger Au, Taurachertal, Lungau, Salzburg, Austria

Size: 53 x 43 x 41 mm


Rather rare material from a limited find in 2015, when an isolated fluorite vein was found in the gravel quarry of Mauterndorf. While there came a bunch of heavily etched fluorites on the market, the specimen on hand is one of the very few pieces with well preserved cubical faces and distinct color zoning. The fluorite shows green-turquoise to slight purple colors when lit with daylight or a 6500K-LED, and pink-reddish color tones under yellow illumination with a classic light bulb.
