Fluorite and Calcite
San Martin, Zacatecas, Mexico
Miniature, 4.8 x 4.5 x 3.1 cm
Ex. Richard Heck
Glassy and gemmy cubes of pastel-green fluorite, to 2 cm across are wreathed by a druse of sparkling, white calcite. Rising from the back of the specimen is a lustrous and translucent white calcite crystal, measuring 2 cm in length. The calcite fluoresces a vivid, bright orange and the fluorite, a rich, deep purple. Gorgeous, and really elegant, this is a miniature of rare quality even from this mine which once produced specimens by the thousands
