ID: CC21460
A magnificent bed of colour zoned Fluorite associated with bright and gemmy micro-crystals of Quartz from the Buster Pocket at Diana Maria mine near to the village of Frosterley in Weardale, County Durham.  The Fluorite and Quartz coat both sides of an altered limestone matrix, the Fluorite crystals ranging from 5 mm to 1.6 cm with the larger crystals forming interpenetrant twins.  Many of The Fluorite crystals contain beautiful zoning, grading from an outer layer of forest green through pale lemon to an inner lilac core.  The stubby Quartz crystals vary between 1 and 3 mm and add an aesthetic sparkle of colourless, bright white and yellow tinted crystals, the latter stained by iron oxides.  In direct daylight the Fluorite naturally fluoresces deep Royal purple, especially the larger crystals.  Under LWUV all Fluorite crystals fluoresce bright lilac cream whereas the Quartz is non-fluorescent.  A lovely cabinet specimen of Fluorite with Quartz from the Diana Maria mine.
