A large fluorite crystals with an excellent phantom of darker, deeper color. As is typical for fluorite, color varies with lighting: this specimen is darker purple under one set of white LED lights, and a lighter, more bluish-purple under my other white LED lights. Minor chalcopyrite noted. A small corner cleave and minor microchipping observed, but these do not distract. Easily stands for display without needing a stand, but a backlit would be marvelous!
