Comment: Fluorites come in virtually all colors of the rainbow, and are some of the few gems that occur in multicolor stones. I've seen this type of Fluorite from China, but never from Argentina. The stone comes from a trusted source so I have confidence that it's genuine. The stone shows nice alternating light yellow, silvery and blue-green hues. It's a very attractive gem and is only slightly included with a "Square Cushion Cabochon" cut.

Minerals: Fluorite (CaF2)
