ID: CC13211
Burtree Pasture mine is perhaps one of the lesser known localities in Weardale, situated a little to the north of the village of Cowshill.  Originally a lead mine, it has also produced some very nice Fluorite specimens and this is a lovely example.  Partly translucent mauve-purple Fluorite cubes to 2.5 cm are preferentially coated with dense coverage of bright, lustrous micro-crystals of Quartz.  A terrific Fluorite and Quartz from Burtree Pasture mine.
