Fluorite with inclusions of Chalcopyrite
stock #AX-18-153
Denton Mine, Harris Creek Sub District, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.5 x 6.8 x4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $330


A sharp multi-color pastel Fluorite with good clarity and phantoms. The crystals show excellent growth patterns and have sharp crystals of golden Chalcopyrite included inside. This looks fantastic with good lighting. A classic locale, the Denton Mine once produced a lot of good Fluorites, but is now gone forever. Some color changing based on light source, the core color is a pale yellow with blue to purple outer phantoms.
Fluorite - unusual locale-etched sharp cube
stock #A-28-016
Crystal Victory Mine, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.9 x 6.6 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $475


We all miss the great Fluorites that were once common when the southern Illinois mines were still open. At last something NEW from the region! This little known Hardin County Fluorite locale (the junction area of the Victory and the Crystal Mine) recently produced a very few nice specimens for a small collector team. Here a super sharp 4.5 CM cube is centered on a mix of cubes and etched masses of bright purple and yellow. Nice phantoms are seen on the edges, but the overall impact is very good. One of the better small cabinet specimens from this find.
Fluorite (elongated etched crystal)
stock #AX-28-019
Crystal Victory Mine, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.1 x 5.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $485


We all miss the great Fluorites that were once common when the southern Illinois mines were still open. At last something NEW from the region! This little known Hardin County Fluorite locale (the junction area of the Victory and the Crystal Mine) recently produced a very few nice specimens for a small collector team. This is a particularly fine example of the distinctive habit, it has a main elongated crystal with very sharp edges resting on a jumble of smaller etched yet sharp crystals all having the same yellow core. Dark purple color that shows clear phantoms when backlit. Fine condition, displays well and an uncommon locale.
Calcite on Flourite
stock #AX-20-158
Minerva #1 Mine, Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.8 x 5 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $260


Delicate and esthetic slender crystals of calcite are perched in a jackstraw jumble on purple Fluorite. Despite a few cleaved tips this still displays super well. Classic old time specimen, this sort of material is now quite uncommon.
