A beautiful small cabinet sized bed of completely gemmy, pale nickel sea-green Fluorite crystals from Helen’s Pocket in Lady Annabella mine.  This pocket is proudly named for Helen Wilkinson, the well known and highly respected British collector and intrepid mine explorer.  A superb specimen of exceptionally transparent Fluorite cubes range between 0.7 and 1.5 cm and entirely cover a trimmed plate of altered orange-brown ironstone matrix.  Richly covered with interpenetrant twins and single crystals, the twins fluoresce bright lilac-purple with coloured zoning in daylight, whereas the smaller, single crystals tend to be non-fluorescent.  A superb and very fairly-priced specimen.
