ID: CC19301
Although Blackdene mine, close to Ireshopeburn in Weardale, County Durham, England, is known for its purple Fluorite, it did produce other colours and this is a good example of yellow.  A long, narrow cleaved plate of Fluorite composed of the 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 with dazzling lustre, preferentially coating the Fluorite crystals from one direction.
