Big, zoned purple Fluorites crystals with sharp edges and classic face modifications. As is typical of some english Fluorites like this there is daylight fluorescence. The outer edges of the cubes are clear while the center is a milky white to pale purple. In exceptional condition damage wise, there are a few dull Galena crystals with Goethite overgrowth that adding contrast. From an older collection, this was collected long prior to 1970. The largest cube is over 5 CM diagonal and the condition is excellent damage-wise.
A classic daylight fluorescence Fluorite from Weardale. In fine condition with a large twin (2.8 CM diagonal) prominently on top of a mound of smaller, sharp Fluorites. Good transparency and luster, there are a few phantoms in the larger crystals. A choice example from this once prolific region and a fine textbook quality twin.
Brilliant green transparent cubes to 4 CM across show penetrations and fine growth hillocks. This also has a very nice daylight Fluorescence in vivid purple blue. A quite old specimen (pre 1950's) that is notably different from any of the recent finds. The color and clarity stand out in person, but are hard to see in photos. The condition is fine on the two primary display sides, the back is broken where it was removed and not visible in any logical display.
