A lovely small miniature of light purple to colourless Fluorite with a wonderful mauve hue from the Purple Rain Pocket in Lady Annabella mine, Eastgate, Weardale, County Durham, England.  A good sized interpenetrant twin is perched on top of a thin vein of micro-crystallised Fluorite.  The twin measures up to 1.9 cm on its longest edges and is surrounded by smaller Fluorite crystals of much less intense colour.  Examined under low magnification, the Fluorite prisms display lovely internal colour zoning.  The Fluorite displays mild to good daylight fluorescence and under LWUV fluoresces a uniform bright white lavender.
