Concretion impregnated with Fluorite. The patterns of the Fluorite are very similar to the reticulated Behoite from MSH. So, is the Fluorite replacing the Behoite? Or is the Behoite filling the gaps left by the Fluorite growth. I can imagine why the Fluorite have this kind of pattern. The Behoite is light yellow.
