Fluorite and Celestite
Clay Center, Ottawa Co., Ohio, USA
Miniature, 3.5 x 3.5 x 2.5 cm
A superb example from the recent find at Clay Center of glassy, amber-colored fluorites in association with milky crystals of celestite. Clay Center has long been known as a fluorite specimen locality; the crystals can range from transparent such as this, to a rather murky brown. This largish crystal has just a couple of tiny spots of edge-wear, so it in wonderful condition, and as you can see, the aesthetics are great too.
