Classic translucent-opaque caramel-brown crystals of Willemite variety Troostite from the Franklin Mining District, New Jersey, USA. Crystals of Troostite measure to 1.7cm displaying the crystal habit to advantage from the slightly pink-white Calcite matrix. As would be expected the Willemite crystals fluoresce a strong neon green under Shortwave UV light. the Calcite is a bright orange fluoresces, a fine UV contrast. Named in 1832 by Charles Upham Shepard later found to be a Mn-enriched Willemite.
