      Fluorite - Boltry quarry, Seilles, Wallonia, Belgium

      Blue to mauve fluorite, with a shape far removed from the classic cube that we generally look for in fluorite. It is in fact a floating lump, the surfaces of which show very beautiful dissolution figures, naturally sculpted by the circulation of hydrothermal fluids. This sample is atypical in terms of its provenance (fluorite is not common in Belgium) and the uniqueness of this discovery, which took place in a single area of the quarry in the 1960s/1970s. Although rare, Seilles fluorite is known for its wide colour range and its quality, which is particularly evident when it is cut. See Le Règne Minéral no. 129.

      5 x 3.8 x 1.7 cm.
