If you are interested in crystallography and collect specimens displaying unusual features, then this is certainly for you.  The tower-like limb of blackcurrant cordial coloured Fluorite is from the famous Annabel Lee mine in the Illinois-Kentucky Fluorspar District of Hardin County, Illinois, USA.  It is composed of three limbs, one long and two short, which form the corner of a once larger Fluorite cubic crystal.  The Fluorite is partly dusted and included with small Chalcopyrite and equant, glassy Quartz crystals.  From one side we see what was formerly the inside of the cube and where the limbs join, these are overgrown with a second generation of infilling smoky grey Fluorite of Mercedes-Benz triclinic symmetry, highlighted in pale purple Fluorite.  Enough said?  This amazing small cabinet specimen is accompanied with three labels.
