This is a thick crust of clear yellow fluorite that is covered with tightly intergrown, blocky cubic crystal faces on the surface. The interior is gemmy, which shows up best when the piece is backlit (try setting it on a windowsill). In reflected light the color is a deep golden yellow, but with transmitted light, it is a glowing rich yellow color. This is from a new 2017 find at the same mine that produced similar material in 2007, causing a minor sensation.
