This is a rare combination and fine example from this famous and already classic find. The reddish fluorite is a complete-all-around octahedron that is popping out of a mix of bladed crystals of calcite. The fluorite is 3.2cm across. The color might be better in person, depending on the lighting, because I do not enhance the colors in photoshop as has been done on many of those by others.
