This small miniature of intermeshed gemmy Fluorite crystals is from the West Pasture mine, close to the town of Stanhope in Weardale, County Durham.  This mine is famous for its distinctive apple-green Fluorite.  This specimen does indeed represent this delightful colour, but also has the bonus of random light lime-green zones within the remarkably transparent crystals.  The Fluorite group covers a matrix core of mixed creamy limestone and rusty-orange iron-rich altered limestone.  A splendid miniature example of well crystallised Fluorite from West Pasture mine with cubic crystals of up to 1.2 cm on edge.
