ID: CC20520
The Graeber Jones Pocket was one of the first major discoveries at the Diana Maria mine when near-surface excavations commenced in the summer of 2017.  Covering a hidden matrix of creamy-tan massive Fluorite and Quartz, deep emerald to emerald-sea-green Fluorite crystals form a rugged dome composed of both single crystals and interpenetrant twins.  Most crystals have mossy cream-green crazed face centres which grade to gemmy edges and corners, the latter emitting bright purple daylight fluorescence with the centres remaining non-fluorescent.  A beautiful and showy Fluorite from the Diana Maria mine in Weardale, County Durham, England.
