Stoneco quarry (Maumee Stone Quarry; Maumee Quarry; Lime City Quarry), Lime City, Wood Co., Ohio, USA
Cabinet, 11.5 x 9.5 x 6.0 cm
A STRIKING Ohio CABINET specimen of lustrous, white celestine crystals to 3.0 cm on limestone matrix. The crystals look hexagonal, but are in fact, parallel growth. They are LIGHT GREEN FLOURESCENT and PHOSPHORESCENT! This undamaged piece was collected in the early 1980s by Henry Fisher from the Lime City Quarry and the locality is now closed. this very striking two-toned habit is unusual and was found only a few times around that period. I should know, as Henry took me on one of my first field ttrips as a collector soon after finding the pocket! This is a grea tpiece that he has kept in his personal collection for over 20 years. 11.5 x 9.5 x 6.0 cm
