A stunning and unusual fluorite consisting of an elongated (etched?) crystal that ends in a cube termination and is associated with cubed faces along the side of the crystal and sits on sphalerite crystals with micro quartz and galena crystals. One of the neatest pieces I’ve seen out of this locale!. Originally in the collection of Leonard Himes who purchased it from Ocus Stanley in the early 70’s and sold it to D. Nelson in 2002.

Fluorite with Muscovite, Bertrandite (ex Nelson Coll.)

ID: 3645
Add to OrderNot checked

A beautiful specimen consisting of very gemmy (the matrix can be seen under the crystals) and lustrous blue cubes of fluorite with a deep purple color zone on the edges. These sit on a matrix of muscovite and tiny clear crystals of bertrandite. There is contact on the rear of both larger groups of fluorites, but it is on the rear of the crystals and it does not affect display. A stunning piece!
