Shaped like a snow covered christmas tree, this is a nicely aesthetic specimen of octahedral fluorite on a white contrasting quartz matrix. The fluorite crystals are of a marvelous color combination, green at the center and deeply purple at the edges with a size that ranges from only a few millimeters up to 1.3 cm on edge. The fluorites faces are frosted. The matrix is a mat of thousands of white quartz needles that have been growing on green fluorite - you can still see the imprint as well as a small leftover of the fluorite. The periphery is contacted but the rest is in well condition with only some minor edgewear.
