4.1" Green Cubic Fluorite Crystal Cluster - Morocco

This is a gorgeous specimen of green cubic fluorite crystals, collected near Alnif, Morocco. The fluorite crystals have excellent fluorescent properties under short wave UV lighting. Some of the cubes have a maroon color due to hematite zones under the green fluorite. There are small blades of barite that are dusted with what appears to be hematite.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.

Fluorite is a halide mineral comprised of calcium and fluorine, CaF2. The word fluorite is from the Latin fluo-, which means "to flow". In 1852 fluorite gave its name to the phenomenon known as fluorescence, or the property of fluorite to glow a different color depending upon the bandwidth of the ultraviolet light it is exposed to. Fluorite occurs commonly in cubic, octahedral, and dodecahedral crystals in many different colors. These colors range from colorless and completely transparent to yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, or black. Purples and greens tend to be the most common colors seen, and colorless, pink, and black are the rarest.
