ID: CC8170
A choice miniature of pale emerald-green Fluorite forming two interpenetrant cubic twins on a small bed of slightly smoky, bright glassy Calcite crystals.  From the world-famous Height’s Mine at Westgate in Weardale, County Durham, the larger of the twinned crystals measures approximately 1.5 x 1.2 x 0.8 cm and is quite gemmy throughout.  Some edges do have very slight nicks, but these are minimal. Other smaller cloudy whitish-green Fluorite crystals are scattered around the edges of the Calcite matrix.  A lovely miniature Fluorite from the classic mines of Weardale, England.
