Fluorite on Stalactite

ID: CC4141

An unusual cluster of daylight fluorescent gemmy/translucent green Fluorite developed about a stalactite, from the well regarded Heights Mine, Weardale (the specimen was collected pre 1970 George Farr Collection, Heights Mine has been inaccessible for many years). Crystals of Fluorite measuring to 1.4cm display the classic interpenatrant twinning habit, and are seen covering altered Fe-oxide brown core stalactite of Limestone, so typical of the mine. An intriguing specimen from the mine.
