A curious miniature of interpenetrant twinned Fluorite crystals attached to a Calcite stalactite from the Heights mine at Westgate in Weardale, County Durham.  Gemmy leaf green Fluorite crystals measure to 1.2 cm on edge with the remainder of the stalactite encrusted with tiny pale green Fluorite cubes up to just 2 mm on edge.  I first wondered if the matrix was a crinoid stem, but with each end exposed and open to closer examination, no evidence of a fossil exists.  An interesting Fluorite from the famous Heights mine.
