A terrific small miniature nickel sea-green Fluorite from the Fairy Holes Pocket at Lady Annabella mine, on a sawn-trimmed matrix of hard and dense deep chocolate-brown ironstone.  The matrix surface is covered with small, pale lime-yellow Fluorite cubes to about 4 mm and on top of these sit several gemmy Fluorites.  The main feature is an exceptionally fine interpenetrant twin whose primary crystal is 1.6 cm on edge and is complexly asymmetrically zoned in shades of nickel-green and purple.  In direct daylight, both the twin and the larger crystals fluoresce intense rich Royal purple.  Another delightful specimen from the Fairy Holes Pocket.
