Just thought I'd share seems lonely on here lately


Recommended Posts

Figured I'd share one of my favorite pieces with all you guys it's a fist sized chunk of flourite with huge calcite crystal growing off it about 3" , but the one thing the always amazes me about this piece is it literally has everything flourite can offer in an amazingly beautiful piece. I will get more pictures tonight with a light under it to show it off some more ;), also side note all the black specs insideĀ of the flourite are flouresent green under short wave black light if anyone could help me figure out what it is would be appreciated šŸ‘

I haven't had any problems with BLM officials at all, I just always watch the posted signs at the hiking areas I check out for potential rock hounding and most of them have signs that say no rock collecting the areas I mainly go to are in octillo and around julian.

My bad on the light background photos, my flashlight died and been lazy to get a replacement, but just for funĀ was curious what you guys would value this piece at, I've never had it appraised so this is just more for fun than anything else. My guess would be at least in the $80-100 rangeĀ

Absolutely beautiful! I love the triangular lines in it!

Thank you very much! Those triangles actually form a pyramid inside the pieceĀ that with light under the piece you can see it a lot more clearly!
