Very interesting combination of several minerals and colors with gemmy quality. The fluorite crystals create blue and dark blue cubes, ranging in size from 3 mm to 1.5 cm, which grow on 2 large crystals of morion. Fluorite cubes also grow each other and are zonal. Very small crystals of calcite, arsenopyrite and pyrite grow on the fluorite cubes. This sample comes from a unique site in Siberia.
