ID: CC20518
Under indoor artificial light this lovely group of Fluorite crystals from the Diana Maria mine appear almost black due to their colourless yet purple-tinged pigmentation.  The cubic crystals stack-up on a crystallised Quartz matrix with the largest crystal at the top measuring 1.5 cm on edge.  The back is coated with drusy white Aragonite which extends over this top crystal and tumbles over onto its front faces.  The crystals are beautifully colour-zoned, grading to green faces and in sunlight all the Fluorite emits a wonderful and intense deep blackberry-purple fluorescence.  A fine Fluorite from the Graeber Jones Pocket in Diana Maria mine, recovered in summer 2017.
