Ex. Ross Lillie
Totally covering its limestone matrix is a large cluster of glassy and gemmy, deeply colored fluorite, in crystals, to 1.5 cm across. These crystals are perhaps the most saturated and yet gemmy deep vivid purple you can ask for. Small, but awesome quality. Personally collected by Ross Lillie on July 17, 1984 from the "Geologist Pocket" which was the size of a basketball. RCL 0292.
