ID: CC21874
Golden lemon cubic crystals of Fluorite are piled up over an elongated ridge of crinoidal limestone matrix from Hilton mine in Scordale valley, Cumbria, England.  This location is within a military controlled area requiring appropriate permission to collect.  However, entry to the underground workings is now off limits due to partial collapse.  The crystals measure up to 1.5 cm on edge and range from gemmy to translucent, all with a bright glassy lustre.  Gemmy micro-Quartz crystals are lightly sprinkled over the Fluorite which add sparkle.  At one side, by the base, a roughly 3 x 1.5 cm area is more densely coated with milky white Quartz crystals and the occasional brown Siderite crystal nestles between the Fluorite here and there.
