Fluorite - zoned, classic yellow- purple
Minerva #1 Mine, Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.1 x 4.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150
Pre Holiday 2017

An American classic, sharp Fluorite with excellent color and form from the Minerva #1. Complex cubic stepping and hoppers on several faces and a few Chalcopyrite crystals add a nice accent. The Fluorite cubes are very sharp, in fine condition, colorful and translucent to transparent. Looks great from several angles and with backlighting is really dramatic. The photos here are NOT backlit so it looks as it will in a typical display without special lighting. Sadly such quality Illinois Fluorites are fast becoming rare and expensive. No damage except on the underside where it was attached, this is choice and clean on all display faces.
