Fluorite Octahedron Crystals
£2.07 ex VAT
Fluorite octahedron crystals from China exhibiting the perfect crystal habit of the mineral, the crystals range from transluscent greens, purples and pinks and while they are natural fluorite, the mineral has been broken down to the shape utilising fluorites own cleavage. Available in two sizes the pieces come supplied with a label and are excellent for young collectors and educational use to depict mineral cleavages.
Fluorite octahedrons, these crystals specimens display in excellent quality another variation of the minerals, fluorites crystal habits, the octahedron. The crystals each have exactly 8 faces, hence the octahedron name. During formation, if the crystals have four perfect cleavage planes, octahedral shapes are produced. These particular samples come from China, each one is slightly translucent, letting though partial light and they all vary slightly in colour through various shades of green, purple and clear. It is important to note that these crystals, are genuine fluorite, they have been broken down, using the minerals own habit into the octahedron form. We offer them in two sizes small and large with each coming with a label.
