Fluorite and Sphalerite
Rosiclare Level, Denton Mine, Harris Creek, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 6.4 x 2.6 cm
Ex. Ross Lillie

Adorable specimen with small gem crystals! The Fluorites, which range up to 1 cm, have excellent luster, clarity, and zoning. The mm-size Sphalerites are as lustrous and gemmy as can be. The simple aesthetics of these individual crystals spread across the St. Genevieve limestone matrix is classic for here, and I can't help but be reminded by this of the famous zoned Fluorites from the Auglaize Mine. So appealing! Mined in 1984. RCL1299
