The fluorite crystals on this Elmwood specimen have dark purple edges, around a very pale lavender, which is almost clear. They are nicely formed cubic crystals to 3.7" across, with rough surfaces due to multiple cubic growth hillocks on the faces. Several of the corners are gem clear and lustrous, which is beautiful and rare. The crystals have good luster and are well formed.  There are no broken or damaged crystals on this fine specimen. I was told by the dealer in Tucson that the piece came from an auction at the Natural History Museum of  Los Angeles, but there is no card for that.
