A rare fluorite from a new find at Poggio Balate, Termini Imerese, Palermo Province, Sicily, Italy! This specimen features a multitude of blue fluorite cubes that have formed together on a bit of matrix. Some of the faces are included with a clay-like mineral, which gives it a tan color. This cannot be removed with cleaning, as it is included in the fluorite. These were from a limited find – I was only able to procure 25 specimens – of those, only 2 remain, and I don’t believe I’ll be able to get any more.
