ERT35AO0: Great piece, both for its size and its quality, being (in size) one of the best known fluorites from this deposit. The large cubes, with good transparency and a nice uniform green color, have inclusions and on some edges octahedral faces that can be distinguished from cleavages because they are somewhat rough and show crystal figures. Exceptional specimen from a historic mine.
