ID: CC16265
Three pairs of mild emerald-green Fluorite twinned crystals sit on an altered limestone matrix coated with small 1 to 2 mm pale peppermint-green Fluorite cubic crystals.  From the famous Heights mine at Westgate in Weardale, County Durham, the three interpenetrant twins all occur as elongated crystals and, as is often observed, the twins are much larger than the individual single crystal, attaining 1.7 cm on their longest edge.  Equant etched lead-grey Galena crystals are sparsely scattered over the specimen.  A fine miniature example.
