Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 5.0 x 4.5 cm
Minerva No. 1 Mine, Cave-in-Rock, Cave-in-Rock Sub-District, Illinois - Kentucky Fluorspar District, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
A large, excellent example of an Illinois classic. Light creamy-golden color, good luster and a fine crystal structure. The specimen has a very good display face that doesn't show the matrix contacts on the bottom and side. I sold this many years ago, about a decade, to Dr. Helen Holmes, and it is from her collection that it comes back now. It was then, and remains, a superb and unusually well-formed large crystal for this classic locality that is now closed. 6.5 x 5 x 4.5 cm
