Fluorite with Wolframite (ex Nelson Coll.)

ID: 3171
Add to OrderNot checked

Greenish purple bipyramidal octahedrons of fluorite associated with a very sharp wolframite crystal. An unusual floater (crystallizezd on all sides), since the common association at this locality is smoky quartz. Another interesting thing is that one of the faces on the main fluorite is completely smooth, unlike the others that have the stepped growth. Very strange!!!!!
