Fluorite -classic zoned crystals
stock #20.1-106
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.
Fluorite
stock #19.1-502
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
5.2 x 2.2 x 1.7 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $420
Spring 2020

A complete 360 degree "Carthage corner" Fluorite with deep purple color that is fully translucent to transparent. Every face of this piece is perfectly etched with tiny stairstep structures from the complex re-crystallization that forms these unique shapes. It is not completely understood why this form of Fluorite that is very rare worldwide has been found so often at the Elmwood mine. Even at this prolific site good, clean undamaged examples are still uncommon. A choice piece with well saturated color.
Fluorite -deep purple -fluorescent red
stock #19.1-758
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.7 x 3.6 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $330


Rich "royal purple" cubes on a contrasting gossan matrix from the prolific Mina Ojuela. Excellent transparenc with lightly etched faces this has the best color that can be found at this locality and has the rare brilliant red fluorescence that makes this Fluorite unique. In great condition as seen, the display side is undamaged there are some contacts on the backside only and not seen. Choice and eyecatching, the red UV response is especially strong on this specimen.
Fluorite -gem clear on Quartz
stock #17.1-163
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
7.1 x 4.8 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $680


Incredibly transparent. clear cubes of Fluorite on a sparkling Quartz matrix. The details of the matrix are perfectly visible seen through the Fluorite. In excellent condition the cubes have typical small edge bevels and light violet color with a slight hint of zoning. The result is the Fluorite is nearly invisible from some angles. From a small but excellent pocket found in 2017, this is an especially fine example from this remarkable locality, and an great Fluorite from any place at all.
Fluorite, Galena, Quartz, Brochantite and Anglesite
stock #19.1-996
Blanchard Mine, Bingham, Hansonburg District, Socorro County
New Mexico, United States
8.3 x 7 x 2.0 CM (cabinet)
price: $750


Old specimen collected by Les Hitchings in the early 1960 period. In remarkable condition a plate of matrix with very three dimensional and well positioned highlights. The Galena is especially choice, sharp and shows the typical alteration to Anglesite on the surface in unusually sharp well defined crystals. These are also Fluorescent bright yellow. The Fluorite shows well the stepped growth structure that is distinctive from this locale which is nearly spherical. In several spots on the matrix are tiny balls of Rosasite that while not very large add a touch of color on close exam. Great esthetics, a classic locale and in excellent condition.
Fluorite- Pink
stock #19.1-677
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
2.2 x 1.4 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $240


A choice little thumbnail cluster of light pink transparent Fluorites. From the important new find at Huangang, these clear octahedrons are included by fibers of an Asbestos like mineral, perhaps Byssolite clearly seen inside. The specimen is a chain of 4 discrete complete Octas with no matrix. Can be displayed in any orientation. This was a large find at Huangang but this level of quality was very rare, perhaps 1 in 100 pieces at best. This style of Fluorite is unique, absolutely unlike the pinks from any other locality. The faces are lightly frosted but the interiors are very clear with good color. The large number of specimens recovered has helped keep the prices affordable this is certainly the right time to get a choice piece. Better in person.
Fluorite -Pink Octahedral with inclusions
stock #19.1-676
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
1.8 x 1.2 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $220


From the great new finds at Huangang, this is a perfect thumbnail of two light pink octahedral crystals. The crystals are nicely juxtaposed and the whole is a small but esthetic piece of high quality. These transparent octahedrons are included by fibers of an Asbestos like mineral, perhaps Byssolite. The condition of this is perfect on all sides, each corner and edge is undamaged. This was a very large and impressive find but this level of perfection was very rare, perhaps 1 in 100 pieces at best. This style of Fluorite is quite unique and absolutely unlike any pinks from any other locality. The faces are lightly frosted but the interiors are very clear and the included fibers are easily seen. The large number of specimens recovered has helped keep the prices very affordable this is certainly the right time to get a choice piece.
