ID: CC4898
A classic tetrahexahedral habit Fluorite crystal, probably from the [Pell Mine (St. Agnes Consols)], St. Agnes, Cornwall. The specimen was originally labelled “St. Agnes, Cornwall, England”. Several merged Fluorite crystals, configurated in a stepped habit, measure to 1 cm, with pale lilac interiors and mottled violet faces. The Fluorite group is nestled amongst well-formed, terminated prismatic colourless to white Quartz crystals, measuring to 1.7 cm. This specimen is from the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences (No. 1198) and is ex. Dr Thomas B. Wilson. This information is recorded on an accompanying old Crystal Classics label but, sadly, the Philadelphia label is no longer with it.
