ID: CC962

Two excellent large intergrown light lilac crystals of Fluorite probably from the Rotherhope Fell Mine, Cumbria. The Fluorite is mostly translucent with gemmy transparent areas, and lustrous faces. The Fluorite is lightly covered on some crystal faces by tiny gemmy Quartz crystals which in turn are liberally scattered with stubby white crystals of translucent Calcite. There is also the odd Chalcopyrite micro-crystal scattered here and there. Attractive!
