Josele is absolutely right. None of these specimens can be from Alchuri, but from the Nagar Valley instead, where Chumar Bakhoor is located.

In my humble opinion (I'm far from an expert of crystallography), those crystals (the ones from Tobi) are the combination of {100} (cube) and {110} (rhombododecahedron), showing a total of 18 faces.

Sorry Tobi, I already watched the video, but this is a bit confusing to me. It's like a 90º angle.
In any case, it's an excellent specimen of fluorite.
