Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 4.6 x 3.5 cm
A showy and excellent combination specimen from the very famous and now-closed Sweet Home Mine of Colorado. Very glassy, cuboctahedral fluorite crystals to 6 mm are nicely scattered on needle quartz with cherry-red rhodo rhombs and a patch of sulfides, all on quartz matrix. The fluorites make this a distinctive and desirable specimen.
