At Tucson 2011, a single dealer had a small quantity of these very unusual fluorites. I have since been able to track down a few more from multiple different sources. These are really unusual, in that the fluorite crystals (on all but one specimen) tend to form ball-shaped aggregates composted of numerous small octahedral crystals. The color of the individual crystals ranges from a bluish green in most, to a purple in others. These fluorites are really quite unique, in terms of color as well as habit. The habit of the quartz in the matrixes also gives the specimens an appearance unlike fluorites from anywhere else.
