Fluorite

ID: CC21022
The Minty Cheesecake Pocket was part of the much larger Poison Ivy Pocket, itself part of The Bull Vein complex at the Lady Annabella mine, south of the village of Eastgate in Weardale. This form of Fluorite crystal, although specimens were few, warranted a new name because of their distinguishing intensity of aerated minty-cream-green faces framed by gemmy lime-green corners and edges. The latter turn more emerald-green in daylight. Both the colour and texture of the faces is a dead-ringer for the popular cheesecake made from a famous brand of bubble-filled peppermint chocolate! Other brands are not available! The minty-cream cheese faces are a uniform, light peppermint green and have a granular, sucrosic texture and lustre. This gorgeous specimen has superb cubic crystals ranging from 1 to 2.5 cm on edge. An exceptionally unusual colour mixture for any worldwide Fluorite, and one which is sure to please.
