Fluorite on Feldspar

ID: CC4152

A rare classic specimen of Fluorite on Feldspar from one of the discontinuous Pegmatite body's in Chywoon Quarry, Mabe, Cornwall. Rich deep purple crystals of Cubo-octahedral Fluorite display off-set stepped growth measuring over all to 1.5cm, one crystal group pleasingly sits atop a bladed crystal of Feldspar. A druse of micro-crystals of Quartz with scattered milky-white crystals of Apatite mostly covers the Feldspar crystal, with further tiny scattered crystals of Fluorite. A cool specimen from the Quarry, which only occasionally produced such specimens.
