Fluorite on Hematite

ID: CC2591

Lustrous gemmy crystals of blue Fluorite from the recently closed Florence Mine, west Cumbria. Specimens of blue Fluorite were never common from the area, and this specimen displays great colour, as a druse of inter-grown cubic crystals measuring to 4mm on edge. A matrix of red-brown botryoidal Hematite forms a classic association with Fluorite. An excellent blue Fluorite from the mine.
