Stacked group of translucent to transparent sea green fluorite, zoned with clear overgrowths and numerous white inclusions (likely barite).

It was first acquired by Mel & Grace Dyck and subsequently brokered to Kristalle who liquidated their collection. Gail Hall acquired the piece in 1998 and labeled it K 98-01. In perfect condition and displays from a variety of angles equally well.
