The transparent cleaved surfaces on this 8-sided fluorite octahedron let you look inside to see the phantom layers, which show up as bands of sky blue, purple violet and lavender. The main color is blue, and it is quite colorful. The hand-cleaved unpolished surfaces make a near-perfect octahedron, with a flat bottom so it stands by itself, which make this a dramatic display specimen, and there is no damage.
