Fluorite With Quartz

ID: CC2124

Well formed crystals of Quartz, many of which are double terminated have formed on sharp cubic crystals of Fluorite, from the classic English location of Weardale. The Fluorite crystals measure to 2.3cm on edge, showing a central zone of pastel purple with an outer zone of gemmy colourless Fluorite. A single metallic yellow crystal of Chalcopyrite sits amongst the Quartz crystals on the Fluorite.
