The Lady Annabella mine exploits an area within the former Eastgate quarry, originally named Blue Circle Cement quarry, a locality which has been known since the 1960s for producing an amazing diversity of coloured and zoned Fluorite, including good yellow material.  From The Bull Vein, this first-class specimen is one of gemmy deep lemon crystals, intergrown across a trimmed ironstone matrix.  Many crystals are ice-clear while others grade from gemmy lemon edges and corners to frosted cream face centres.  In artificial light, thin dark edges are perceived on some cubes and in daylight these manifest as fine lavender linear zones sitting just within each crystal face.  The Bull Vein was originally the feeder conduit for the surrounding pockets in this part of the Lady Annabella mine at Eastgate.  During the upward passage of fluoride-rich hydrothermal brines, Fluorite crystallisation occurred along the vein walls.  A beautiful miniature lemon and lavender zoned Fluorite from the Lady Annabella mine in Weardale.
