(Ref: TZ18-ALIENEGG)

Erongo Region, Namibia
160mm x 123mm x 90mm
$17000
What we have here is a twin, glass-clear, pale blue fluorite covered with dark purple fluorite. The specimen is huge and thick, but despite this light passes through it very easily which really makes it light up! Even just ambient room lighting is enough to enter the backside of the specimen and be visible from the front making the specimen appear to glow. The contrast of the dark purple partially obscuring the clear, light blue makes the specimen look very alien in origin, and that's why we call this the "Alien Egg" fluorite.
