Fluorite with Chalcopyrite
Denton Mine, Harris Creek Sub District, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.6 x 6.1 x4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $620


Dark purple-blue Fluorite that is zoned with yellow to orange cores that are best seen with a backlighting. Some faces are dusted with tiny Chalcopyrite crystals and most faces have a lustrous pattern of geometric regrowths. A few edges show modification patterns but most are sharp edged. The Denton Mine is a now one of the great classic localities for USA Fluorite, good specimens are getting very scarce and quite expensive. This is a nice example that is rather dark without backlight but really comes alive with a light behind it.
