Minerva #1 Mine, Cave-in-Rock, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 6.6 x 4.0 cm

Select cluster of lovely Fluorite cubes from the famous Minerva #1 Mine. These Fluorite crystals have gemmy to translucent interiors surrounded by thin, sharp purple and blue zones. Excellent definition and color. The luster is very good, and the habit ranges from simple to complex, which adds visual interest to the piece. There is some micro-bruising, one internal fracture at the bottom tip as shown in the first image but the Fluorites are in excellent condition overall. Very good, clean aesthetics.
