ID: CC2457

A large cabinet specimen of Fluorite with Quartz from Blackdene Mine, Weardale, England. The Fluorite is seen as cubic crystals measuring to 6.8cm on edge in stepped growth formation, with a three faced aspect to them. A varied purple colour of this specimen was of a common occurrence at the Blackdene Mine, with translucent edges. Brassy metallic crystals of Chalcopyrite richly preferentially cover faces of the large Fluorite crystals, inter grown with a further deposition of small Fluorite crystals, and light metallic yellow Pyrite. Sea green Fluorite has formed first and is then overgrown by the purple crystals. A large classic Blackdene Mine Fluorite
