Fluorite -classic zoned crystals
Minerva #1 Mine, Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.4 x 5.6 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $1750
Spring 2020

A super blue to yellow-orange zoned Fluorite with excellent form and outstanding surface modifications. A modern American classic, this is a choice display quality specimen that has a main cube presenting a textbook perfect inset in the largest face. Careful examination will find a few very small edge rough points, which are almost inevitable. Overall however this is in very choice condition. The backside is the former point of attachment and is contacted there but the front is well developed. With backlighting this really glows. Hard to find good Illinois Fluorite of this color now except at very high prices. A good value for the quality, in person the color is a shade darker and a bit more blue than purple under most lighting.
