An interesting miniature of deep blackberry purple Fluorite with crude octahedral and cuboctahedral Galena crystals coated with white Hydrocerussite, from the Hailstorm Pocket in Lady Annabella mine, Eastgate, Weardale, County Durham, England.  The largest Fluorite measures to 1.6 cm and forms an interpenetrant twin.  This crystal is quite gemmy with purple and green zoning.  It has good daylight fluorescence and under LWUV the Fluorite fluoresces bright creamy lavender white.
