  • This is an interesting one. You can have it one of two ways! 1) As a smaller beautiful, amber, fluorite crystal with a small matrix of limestone. or 2) the same fluorite crystal on a larger matrix. This fluorite crystal separated from the large matrix, so I thought I'd offer to send the larger matrix along with it, if you want it. The fluorite crystal and smaller matrix fits perfectly into the large matrix. Nice! Displays well either way!

The top of the stromatolite hemisphere is covered with sparkling tiny dolomite and marcasite crystals. The top of the clustr of fluorite crystals is actually intergrown into limestone which was probably another layer of the stromatolite fossil. Displays very well!
