Willemite, Franklinite
Small Cabinet, 5.3 x 5.0 x 4.0 cm
Franklin, Franklin Mining District, Sussex Co., New Jersey, USA
An American classic. A large, sharp, extremely well-defined, complete-all-around willemite crystal is embedded in off-white calcite and massive franklinite. The willemite crystal is a pleasing brick-red. A sharp, 1.0 cm franklinite octahedron is a fine accent. Glowing lime-green fluorescence on the willemite.
