Fluorite on Quartz, Aktschatau Mine, Jezkazganckaya Oblast, Kazakhstan Small cabinet 4.5 x 7 x 8 cm $250. Online 3/2. SOLD.
Smoky quartz crystals, to 8 cm, with associated deep green cubo-octahedral fluorite. The tip of the large quartz crystal shows localized inclusions on the edges of the faces. I acquired this piece years ago in 1989 and sold it to collector Gail Hall of Indianapolis. I re-acquired it from Gail last year. It was one of the very early Kazakhstan specimens to hit the market after the 'wall' fell. In perfect condition. Gail Hall #RS 89-1.
