Fluorite With Fluorapatite

ID: CC3495

A super specimen of deep purple cubo-octahedral Fluorite from the Chywoon Quarry, Longdowns, Cornwall, collected in 1997 from the 'Fluorite' pocket. The crystals of Fluorite measuring to 1.4cm are arranged mainly along one edge of the specimen with hexagonal crystals of inter grown Fluorapatite crystals. On the reverse of the specimen crystals of lustrous gemmy grey-blue Fluorapatite measuring to 3mm, with a white outer zone to them, are seen to almost completely cover this side of the specimen. An interesting handwritten note by David Green also comes with the specimen.
