Fluorite is the mineralogical form of calcium fluoride. Fluorite crystallizes in the isometric system, this specimen demonstrates quite well the "preferred" crystal habit of the isometric system ... the cubic crystal. The specimen is a chain of intergrown cubic crystals of light green fluorite. The specimen is in excellent condition. It, also, demonstrates the concept of natural crystal growth via the striking "phantom" crystals which have been "trapped" within the larger green fluorite crystals. The grayish, cubic color-zoning apparent inside many of the larger crystals is an indication of a minor compositional change in the natural hydrothermal solutions in which these crystals grew and have frozen for all-time a glimpse of what the crystal looked like mid-way through its growth period ... really interesting mineralogical "time capsule".
