One of the lesser known fluorite localitites in England, and many times accredited to Durham county. Very light, lustrous yellow cubes of gemmy fluorites with light purple edges. Worked in the 1940’s, again in the 1970’s, and shut down by 1983.
Location: Allenhead, North Pennines, Northumberland, England
Dimensions: 5.6 x 5 x 2.3cm
Gemmy, reddish purple bipyramidal octahedrons of fluorite scattered on a white matrix, displaying great form and contrast. This locality is mainly known for the orange creedites, this is one of the best fluorites I have seen from there.

Dark green, very sharp cubes of fluorite with excellent purple zones and some dark blue running through it. The reaction to light by these pieces make a good photograph very diffcult. There are some contact points on the bottom and the rear. The main crystals are all in great shape and the piece displays very well.
Location: Okaruso, Namibia
Dimensions: 5.6 x 4 x 3.6cm
Deep yellow, gemmy and lustrous, intergrown cubes of fluorite. A fabulous specimen from this locality which rarely produces this type of quality!

A frosted, deep green octahedron of fluorite on a greyish quartz and feldspar matrix. There appears to be some purple coloration within the fluorite, as well as an overgrowth over the original crysta and smaller crystals at the base. Excellent pegmatite fluorite from Colorado!
