ID: CC20619
Deep straw-yellow cubes of transparent Fluorite grade to cloudy translucent patches within the sharp-edged crystals.  On a matrix of granular, altered iron-rich limestone, the intergrown crystals measure to 1.9 cm on edge and in many orientations appear to have pencil-thin darker edges.  Observed under low magnification, the crystal edges are seen to contain four individual pale lavender zones, parallel to one another and concentric to the crystal faces.  Drusy patches of clotted-cream Calcite surround some of the Fluorite crystals, as mm-sized botryoidal hillocks.
