Fluorite crystals from Pakistan's Hunza Valley are considered some of the world's finest due to their glassy, lustrous faces, often large, complex crystal form, and variety of striking and vibrant colors. This is a superb large matrix example, with a gemmy green modified octahedron perched perfectly on muscovite crystals. The contrast between the delicate pastel-green fluorite and the bladed muscovite crystals is amazing, and this specimen exemplifies the artistic aesthetics that characterize today's best mineral specimens, with the fluorite instantly drawing the eye. An exceptional fluorite from an important modern locality which has produced the best pegmatite-hosted "alpine" fluorites in the world. Jeff Scovil photo.
