Fluorite (fl) and Chalcopyrite with Calcite
Rosiclare Level, Denton Mine, Harris Creek, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Cabinet, 10.3 x 8.4 x 4.8 cm
Ex. Ross Lillie
Quality combination piece from the Denton Mine. The Fluorite is classic for here, having a yellow core surrounded by purple and blue. The luster is very good, and the surfaces are textured. The largest Fluorite is 3.2 cm on edge, and it does have one solitary ding, but this has virtually no effect on the overall aesthetics, which are very good indeed. The Chalcopyrites are bright and sharp, and the accessory Calcites fluoresce, as do the Fluorites. This is a fine, attractive specimen. Mined in 1990. RCL1556
