A delightful small cabinet specimen of pale lilac to creamy-white Fluorite sprinkled with metallic, lustrous brassy Chalcopyrite crystals along with an attached bright silver Galena crystal.  A superb combination piece from Blackdene mine near the village of Ireshopeburn in Weardale, County Durham.  Blackdene mine is famed for its splendid Fluorite and Galena and this is a top quality example.  The Fluorite cubes are distorted to the much rarer elongated habit and are developed up to 2.7 cm on edge.  A showy Fluorite, Galena and Chalcopyrite from the Weardale valley.
