Although the Huntingdon Township district in Hastings County, Ontario was worked only for Fluorite and Talc, it has 53 species recorded of which it is type locality to nine; a remarkable ratio of under 6:1 species to each type species, or 17%.  This Fluorite, from the Josef Clemente Collection, is a splendid small cabinet specimen composed of good blocky cubic crystals, all with corners modified to the octahedron, tightly clustered around a matrix core of cryptocrystalline milky Quartz coated in a fine layer of sucrosic textured micro-crystalline Quartz.  The cubic crystals range between 1.5 and 2.7 cm and are semi-transparent grading to a milky translucent core with pale apple-green tinged octahedral faces at each corner.  Some of the crystals have small chips on their edges, although these do not distract in any way from the aesthetic of this seldom seen Canadian Fluorite locality.  The last feature of this rare specimen is a single, well-formed, metallic graphite-grey cubic crystal of Galena half embedded in the base.  This is up to 1.5 cm on edge with slightly concave faces.  This terrific specimen is from the Josef Clemente Collection of southern Germany.
