The gum drop green color of this fluorite octahedron is exceptionally rich, and the smooth surfaces of the crystal show off its gemmy interior especially well. Fluorite's natural cleavage planes are at right angles to each other, allowing it to be formed into 8-sided octahedrons, which look like two pyramids top-to-bottom. This specimen from China's Hunan province is a very colorful example of this material. It measures 3.1" from tip-to-tip, and 2.5" on the longest edge.
