Fluorite on Quartz
Availability: 1 in stock
When these came out (about 7 years ago) Isaias and I went into the Chinese dealers warehouse and spent half a day looking through the flats. Nearly every single piece had some issue. We wound up with only 7 pieces. Later- John Vaeveert stopped by to visit and we got to talking about this find. He lamented that he could not find a single piece with no damage. We showed him ours and he bought 5.
I guess Marty got in before us, as we just scored 4 that have no damage that he had found. This is one has modified cubes to 2cm. The quartz is completely buried in the center. Excellent deep color. These sold for $300-$350 back then!
