Fluorite and chrome lamps designed and created at The Fossil Store, curated minerals for introduction into our world of interiors.
A pair of table lamps with two bright multi coloured fluorite panels to front, these naturally formed quartz family fluorite slices cut from a large solid nodule, this enabling the play of light to lift the coloured veining formed over eons and transform the unique creation of the heavy weighted chrome based lights. The lamps finished with rope twist cord, attached to a on/off rocker switch attachment and plug all in dark brown toned retro bakelite type fittings.
Fluorite is tinted with vibrant colour accidentally rather than inherently (allochromatic), by elemental impurities. This trait gave it its reputation as the most colourful mineral in the world. Fluorite comes in a variety of banded rainbow colours. The amazing colours are determined by environmental factors, impurities, irradiation the absence or voids of the colour centre.
