Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 5.3 x 4.4 cm
340 level, Frazer's Hush Mine, Rookhope, County Durham, England
Ex. Lindsay Greenbank

Elegantly perched high on a 3-dimensional matrix and with smaller pastel colored fluorite crystals, is a superb penetration twinned cluster of glassy and gemmy fluorite, exhibiting lavender purple color. The twin measures 2 cm in length. The fluorite glows an even richer intense grape-juice-purple under fluorescence with a UV light and, notably for this mine, even in just plain daylight. Collected in 1989 by miner Clive Wilkie, this is an excellent and aesthetic piece that does not break the bank to own. There are also some tiny crystals of sphalerite present on the matrix.
