Mineral Specimen #2661 Quartz and Pyrite on Fluorite
This specimen consists of large cubic Fluorite crystals which have an attractive blue green color. The Fluorite is covered with short white to clear Quartz crystals. This coverage is complete on all of the crystal faces which face one direction and nearly complete on the rest of the faces. Scattered across the Quartz crystals are small spherical aggregates of micro Pyrite crystals. The Fluorite fluoresces a strong blue color, similar to English Fluorite. The specimen is in good condition with no appreciable damage; however, some of the Pyrite is covered/morphed to reddish iron oxide/hydroxide.
