Very beautiful piece, Mike. I love the Florence specimens with blue fluorite, a legendary combination from a great classic English mine. From time to time you see a specimen from Florence on the market but the ones with blue fluorite are really rare, hard to get on today's market. The lustrous red quartzes make it even more special and beautiful. A fine English classic, congratulations!

Hi Mike,

As ever, I love the photographs you take!

Yours is truly a unique vision and the photos you produce are always beautifully exceptional. The way the light brings out the most subtle details and color, the orientation and of course, your artist's eye, all combine to produce a visually stunning portrait that captures our attention and appreciation!

Thank you for sharing. Sincerely,

John

Very interesting specimen.
Don't you think it was a perimorphosis of quartz on chalcopyrite?
Then the chalcopyrite was dissolved, in a low pH.

Thanks Roger. That could be the scenario that left those voids in the specimen.
