We propose a theoretical explanation of spontaneous transitions between dim and bright fluorescence intensity states observed experimentally in a microcrystal of diamond with germanium-vacancy colour centres driven by a continuous wave laser. We use a generalized system of optical Maxwell-Bloch equations derived for an emitter in an ensemble of motionless similar particles embedded in a dielectric medium, which is transparent for the incident light. A numerical analysis of transient regimes and several models of slow damping of the bright luminescence mode are reported.
