Fluorite on Celestite, (Gemmy crystals)
stock #15.1-868
Tule Mine, Melchor Muzaquiz
Coahuila, Mexico
4.8 x 4.1 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $90
Fall 2015

An exciting new find at a classic old mine, gem clear Fluorites in delicate purple contrast with the bright white Celestite crystals. The Tule mine was famed for large Celestite with blocky Fluorites that were usually dark and not clear. This find is different, the crystals are smaller but glass clear and highly lustrous. Affordable yet attractive, undamaged and choice miniature.
Fluorite on Celestine (stepped cubes)
stock #A7-172-1365
Tule Mine, Melchor Muzaquiz
Coahuila, Mexico
6.3 x 5 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
Spring 2013

Two very gemmy, zoned purple crystals are perched attractively on a contrasting celestine. An older example from the ccollection of Larry White. The Fluorites are exceptionally sharp, clear and show the classic stepping that is the signature of this now classic location. As a bonus the Fluorites are sprinkled with sparkling clear to amber colored calcites. The dark edge zoning is especially pronounced and the specimen is far better than typical. The display side of this is very clean damage wise, the only cleaves are on the backside that are not visible when displayed.
