ID: CC19301
Blackdene mine, close to the village of Ireshopeburn in Weardale, County Durham, England, is known for its purple Fluorite, but it did produce other colours and this is a fine example of yellow.  A long, narrow cleaved plate of Fluorite displays top faces of intergrown, large honey-yellow Fluorite crystals, the largest measuring 6 cm across its widest edge.  The Fluorite is heavily coated with stubby clear Quartz crystals of dazzling lustre, preferentially coating the Fluorite crystals from one direction. Under LWUV the Fluorite fluoresces a bright, rich purple, especially across the whole of its base.  Where the Fluorite in overgrown by Quartz crystals, these shield the Fluorite and so these areas are non-fluorescent.
