ID: CC7888
A classic Fluorite from the Rosiclare District of Illinois, forming intergrown cubic crystals measuring to 5 cm on edge with a rich amber yellow body colour with an outer pale lilac-lavender zone, very apparent when the crystals are viewed face on.  The prism edges and corners are razor-sharp while the faces are smooth with subtlety undulating growth patterns.  The large cubes have smooth faces while the smaller cubes (to about 2.5 cm on edge) are blockier, built from smaller, similarly aligned Fluorite crystals.  The crystals are wonderfully glassy with a lovely reflective lustre.  The outer lavender-lilac zones can attain 6 mm deep and these colours are also present on the intersecting internal cleavage planes.  These colour zoned Fluorites from Illinois are always a delight, and this small cabinet specimen is certainly one!
