Great material, as usual. That Homestake fluorite is simply perfect, I love that "frosted" octahedrons scattered over the matrix, and they also show colour-zoning, wow. Many reasons for a fluorite connoisseur to love this specimen!

And the afghanite, aside from its elegant shape, it looks translucent, right?


Thanks Tobi. The afghanite is translucent. Maybe I will try to post a back lighted photograph of it.
