A fine old time specimen of Fluorite from the Carn Brea Mine, Illogan. Crystals of Fluorite measuring to 3.7cm are intergrown and scattered over a Siderite matrix with Hematite and Chalcopyrite. The gemmy to translucent Fluorite varying in colour from yellow to light sea green and colourless, with touches of purple to the crystal edges.
