A gorgeous, part interpenetrant Fluorite twinned crystal from the now famous Papa Pocket at Diana Maria mine at Frosterley, Weardale, County Durham. Work at this mine commenced in summer 2017 and over the last four years has produced a whole host of magnificent specimens. This gemmy, leafy chrome green crystal is mounted on a small acrylic base and under LWUV fluoresces intense lilac with white edges. In direct daylight there is no daylight fluorescent, but once placed in a little shade the prism faces turn mild violet-blue.
