Fluorite and Siderite

ID: CC626

A small group of intergrown pale purple Fluorite fluorescing to yellow-brown in daylight, showing interesting multistepping. On the main crystal (3cm across) there is a small Pyrite crystal measuring 3mm on top, and golden brown 'saddle' shaped Siderite on the sides. The other Fluorite crystals are also partially covered in well defined lustrous Siderite. Excellent piece from a classic location and sourced from the Arthur Scoble collection.
