Ex. Martin Zinn; Tom Wiesner
Attractive, translucent, color zoned, fluorite crystals, with dark purple cores and lilac edges, measure 5 cm across. In addition, there are euhedral galena and sphalerite crystals on the back side of the specimen. It is a stunning example of classic, purple zoned fluorite from these now defunct mines!
