A rare, old-time combination specimen from the famous Cryolite Deposit at Ivigtut, Greenland. It has a druse of lustrous, pink fluorite microcrystals (rounded, lustrous, sub-mm size) nicely perched atop a solid vein of fibrous, snow-white cryolite. Minor siderite as well. This classic piece, certainly around 100 years old, comes with an old handwritten German label from the Bergakademie at Freiberg.
