For sale is an outstanding, in size , gem quality and historic connotation , fluorite specimen from the world famous Clara mine, in Germany. The gem nature of this beautiful piece, is quite apparent from the pics, as is the exceptional size of the specimen. Largeish sized fluorite is quite uncommon from this old location. The lavender color is very pretty, there is the slightest remnant of a red mineral on the rear. The specimen has some good phantoms, not easily seen in the pics. We obtained this piece when we purchased the collection of the late A. Martin, of Munich, Germany, about 15 years ago. I have been sitting on this as it was the only German fluorite in the collection, and a good one at that. This specimen is basically a floater! A top specimen virtually impossible to obtain in this size today, from a world renound location.
