ID: CC17133
Pale lemon to golden-lemon yellow Fluorite forms cubic crystals of 3 to 6 mm on edge over a mid-grey Lower Carboniferous (Mississippian) limestone, typical of the mineralisation in the Derbyshire ore field of central England.  This specimen is from the Wakebridge mine at Crich, a village a little to the south-east of Matlock.  The Fluorite crystals are translucent with very attractive internal crazing which produces a glittering play of light.  A patch of cockscomb Baryte crystals are also attached at one side.  A terrific Derbyshire fluorite and good location piece.
