ID: CC32287
A stunning Rogerley mine Fluorite featuring large, gemmy cubic crystals of dark emerald green with wonderful daylight fluorescence.  Rogerley mine is one of the more famous Fluorite localities in the Weardale Valley of County Durham, England, this specimen dating to pre-UKMV Ltd. specimens which were often sold without a specific pocket name.  The crystals attain over 3 cm on their longest edges, these often being elongated cuboids and almost all are superbly transparent and gemmy.  The faces exhibit linear growth patterns as both horizontal striations and concentrically nested rectangles of diminishing size toward the face centres.  In direct daylight the crystal faces naturally fluoresce stunning bright indigo-purple.  Under LWUV the entire specimen fluoresces brilliant lavender-white and even in SWUV (which usually causes no reaction), the fluorite is an ethereal lavender.  Several small Galena crystals are distributed around the periphery.  Some crystals have the odd chip, but overall it is a beautiful cabinet specimen.
