Fluorite Crystals on Quartz Crystal GroupNERF 013

Purple fluorite crystals on quartz crystal group

Measurements:  50 x 33 x 30 mm

Description:  Mostly purple, small fuorite crystals sit on a group of quartz crystals, which started its growth cycle as smoky quartz, but received a 2nd generation growth of milky quartz. 

Because the fluorite crystals are mostly very small, it is difficult to see whether there is any damage to them. The only notable damage is to the specimen's bottom where it parted from its matrix (image bottom left).

Chemical Composition:  CaF2  (fluorite) 

Hardness on Mohs Scale:  (fluorite)  4  
(quartz)  7
