Fluorite and Sphalerite
Rosiclare Level, Denton Mine, Harris Creek, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Cabinet, 13.8 x 7.3 x 6.1 cm
Ex. Ross Lillie
Fine combination piece from the well-known Denton Mine, featuring three very good Fluorite crystals nestled among hundreds of good Sphalerites. The violet Fluorites have good luster and a translucency good enough to appreciate the zoning. The largest Fluorite is 4 cm, and they are in excellent condition save for one small bruise on one lower corner. The lustrous, gemmy, ruby jack Sphalerites have a rich, dark cinnamon color and good fire when they transmit light. An excellent and attractive combination piece. Mined in 1993. RCL1498
