If you have been after for a Fluorite that exhibits magnificent daylight fluorescence, then look no further, this specimen is stunning.  Amongst a deep sea-green cluster of Fluorite crystals from Fairy Holes Pocket at Lady Annabella mine near to Eastgate, a large interpenetrant twin sits towards one end and of much darker sea-green, almost appearing black.  The gemmy transparent twinned crystals are wonderfully colour zoned green and purple, while the surrounding smaller crystals are paler green with pale peppermint frosted face centres.  The colour zoning in the twin is iconic Weardale material!  Take the specimen outdoors into daylight and my oh my, the entire twin, some 2 x 2 x 2.5 cm overall, turns a stunning and majestic rich and intense Royal purple; it is an amazing show-stopper!  A classic specimen at a very competitive price.
