Calcite on zoned Fluorite
stock #18.1-438
Rosiclare Level, Denton Mine, Haris Creek Sub-district, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.5 x 4.8 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Late Summer 2018

The corner section of a zoned Fluorite crystal (purple-blue with yellow core) is the matrix for a cluster of Calcite in transparent scalenohedral forms. Several Calcites have a milky phantom in the center, and contrast well with the Fluorite. Ex. Hitchings collection, this was purchased in 1990. The Fluorite is a partial crystal cleaved as seen, the Calcites are in excellent condition, only one cleave found on the backside, the front display face is pristine. With backlighting this glows and the color is very strong.
Fluorite - purple, blue, yellow etc
stock #18-AX-18-064
Rosiclare Level, Denton Mine, Haris Creek Sub-district, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
8.1 x 6 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $490
Worldwide mix summer

A choice, sharp old Rosiclaire, Illinois Fluorite dusted with a little sparkling Quartz. Very good translucency, this backlights very well and shows multiple internal colors. In sunlight or daylight balanced light sources this is a nice blue with hints of yellow and some red internal color. Incandescent lighting turns this a more purple color. Overall in very good condition, a close exam finds some very tiny edge bruises but these are clearly not distracting yet keep the price low. Better in person, strong display and now getting very hard to find this quality at reasonable costs.
