These fluorites are from the Okorusu Mine in the Otjiwarongo Dist. of the Otjozondjupa Region of Namibia. This is an open pit operation that is most famous for the variety of  fluorite specimens found there. Fluorite is a halide mineral that contains the elements Ca and F. Specimens from this locale are commonly cut from small vugs found in large massive pieces. The pieces are removed and the excess fluorite is then removed and trimmed. These are modified cubooctahedral fluorite crystals. They are translucent and have a violet color. This piece measures approximately  3 5/8 x 2 1/8 x 1 3/8 inches or 92 x 54 x 35 mm.
