Large Cabinet, 15.3 x 7.1 x 3.1 cm
Ex. Ross Lillie
Exceptional, UNIQUE, elongated Fluorite crystal with complete crystallized faces all around. In person, it has more transparency. One major face, the presentation face if you will, is smooth, while the reverse face has gently stepped growth. This elongated form is exceptional, and rather reminiscent of some of the famous (though smaller) elongated English Fluorites that came from the Pennines. From this mine, I just have not ever seen the like. A nice, sharp color zone rings the specimen. Overall, this is an excellent, aesthetic floater that really stands out in a case. It comes with a custom base. Mined in 1995. RCL0704
