FLUORITE PURPLE YELLOW
Great clusters of lovely Fluorite Purple Yellow Crystals. There are two of them one Purple and the other is Yellow. I did not want to separate them as they look like the have similar collection catalogue numbers attached. Strikingly coloured and quite different to many of the other fluorite specimens collectors tend to have. The Yellow is 1014337 and the Purple is 1012441. The location for the Purple Fluorite is missing, the Yellow specimen comes from Spain. Stunning little examples of Fluorite with really good Cubic Crystals.
Moscana Mine, Asturius, Spain.
Purple Fluorite 5.1cm x 3.6cm x 3.7cm, 50g.

Fluorite is from the Latin noun meaning a stream or to flow. Fluorite is used as a flux when smelting metals to help the slag rise to the top and give better fluidity to the molten metal. This mineral has some amazingly coloured crystals for the beginner to advanced collector.
