ID: CC13522
Equant and distorted cubes of lavender-grey, strongly colour-zoned Fluorite form this beautiful miniature from Heights mine at Westgate in the Weardale valley.  The crystals are developed to 2 cm on edge, usually with smooth glassy faces and razor-sharp edges.  Some crystals adopt the much rarer distorted cubic form in which all the edges are of differing length.  All Fluorite crystals are intensely colour-zoned in various subtle shades of light lilac-grey, with hints of green and purple and range between transparent, translucent, and frosted opaque cores.  In direct sunlight the Fluorite emits a subtle yet beautiful daylight fluorescence.  Cream druses of Calcite (or Aragonite) are draped over the edges and sides of some of the Fluorite crystals, adding contrast in colour and habit.  A beautiful miniature colour-zoned Fluorite from Height’s mine.
