Fluorite

ID: CC20636
This excellent interpenetrant twinned Fluorite is from the evocatively named Fairy Holes Pocket at Lady Annabella mine, and is of the now familiar leafy sea-green we associate with this pocket.  The twin is unusual in that the two crystals are of similar size, rather than the more typical asymmetric habit, with each crystal measuring between 1.6 and 1.8 cm.  The twin is perched on a matrix of small fluorite crystals forming a tightly curved dome, likely epimorphing some former fossil.  The twin fluoresces zoned bright Royal purple in direct daylight.
