Fluorite on Quartz

ID: CC3457

Excellent well formed crystals of Fluorite on Quartz from one of Weardales most well known mines. Crystals of Fluorite measure to 3.5cm displaying stepped growth and elongation in one direction. The Fluorite crystals are lustrous translucent purple with a darker purple internal colour band towards the crystal faces. Crystal drusey plate of translucent white Quartz is the matrix upon which the crystals of Fluorite have formed. Crystals of Chalcopyrite and Galena are to be seen on one side of the Quartz matrix. A pleasing specimen from the mine.
