Irish Fluorite from Connemara, County Galway, Ireland

Overall body colour of the fluorite is a blue/purple. Some pieces have more a blue hue and some pieces have more a purple hue.
Information about the mineralization at this location is that there was several phases/pulses of fluorite development:
Phase 1: Blue/purple to dark blue/purple octahedral shaped fluorite
Phase 2: Cubic growth over phase 1, colourless zoning with some specimens showing a green colour zone instead.
Phase 3: Fluorite cubes with modified edges
Phase 4: Pale blue/purple cube over growth of phase 2. The cubes have slight etched faces with green colour on the tips of the corners of the cubes. Internally there is a deeper blue/purple cubic zone that can be seen.
This locality hasn't been thoroughly scientifically studied as of yet, but this is the theory proposed at the moment.


(Note that true picture colour may vary slightly due to screen display settings)
