1.9" Green Fluorite, Muscovite & Schorl Association - Namibia

 
Here is a beautiful association of fluorescent, apple green fluorite, muscovite & black tourmaline (schorl) from the Erongo Mountains in Namibia.

Fluorite is a halide mineral comprised of calcium and fluorine, CaF2. The word fluorite is from the Latin fluo, which means to flow. In 1852 fluorite gave its name to the phenomenon known as fluorescence, or the property of fluorite to glow a different color depending upon the bandwidth of the ultraviolet light it is exposed to.

Muscovite is a phyllosilicate mineral of aluminium and potassium. It has a highly perfect basal cleavage yielding remarkably thin laminæ which are often highly elastic.
