This is a Green Fluorite Octahedron which displays a lovely apple green color with great transparency.
Fluorite has interesting cleavage habits. The perfect cleavage parallel to the octahedral faces can sometimes be peeled off to smooth out a crystal into a perfect octahedron.
Fluorite is also one of the more famous fluorescent minerals. Many specimens strongly fluoresce, in a great variation of color. In fact, the word "fluorescent" is derived from the mineral Fluorite.
The name of the element fluorine is also derived from Fluorite, as Fluorite is by far the most common and well-known fluorine mineral.
Fluorite comes in a wide range of colors and has consequently been dubbed "the most colorful mineral in the world". The color of the fluorite is determined by factors including impurities, exposure to radiation, and the absence or voids of the color centers.
