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.
