A neat classic specimen of deep purple Fluorite on Sphalerite from the Elmwood Mine, Carthage, USA. Very lustrous crystals of Fluorite measuring to 1.7cm on edge show extensive stepped growth faces. Fluorite's are beautifully arranged over the display face of the specimen. The colour of the Fluorite crystals have a central area of gemmy light purple with a deep purple outer zone, giving the characteristic appearance of much Fluorite from the mine. Crystals of Fluorite have formed on lustrous light reflecting inter grown crystals of deep brown Sphalerite. A classic from the mine.
