ID: CC20640
A charming combination of sea-green Fluorite attached to two tightly intergrown modified graphite-grey Galena crystals, from Fairy Holes Pocket at the Lady Annabella mine in Weardale.  The 1.4 cm long interpenetrant twin, embedded in the Galena, is completely transparent and in strong daylight appears a much lighter, fresh spring green containing delicate purple zoning, but does not fluoresce.  The Galena forms two natural lightly etched and pitted cubic crystals, each partly modified to the cuboctahedron.
