This magnificent group gemmy emerald-green Fluorite crystals is from the Diana Maria mine close to the village of Frosterley in Weardale, County Durham, England.  The specimen is dominated by a large interpenetrant twinned crystal of wonderful clarity, internal colour zoning and of the much rarer distorted cubic habit.  On face is curved, an extremely rare habit in Weardale Fluorite.  Note there are two chips on the top edges, but the crystals remain magnificent.  Moving from artificial to natural daylight, the crystals turn a superb blackberry-purple due to their brilliant daylight fluorescence.  A gorgeous and aesthetic good-size miniature of green Diana Maria Fluorite.
