Description:Gorgeous, exceptional rich emerald-green gem fluorite cubes from this extinct (2002) limestone quarry. The beautiful interpenetrating cubes, to 2.0 cm, are dramatically and aesthetically isolated on the sculptural matrix plate covered with smaller fluorites. This green color richness is very uncommon from here and is the match for specimens from the famous nearby Heights and Rogerley Mines. Nearly pristine, with only a couple of hard-to-see gently bruised corners to the large crystals. Rich purple fluorescence. Ex Dr. Stephen Moreton Collection and collected in 1998. This super piece is illustrated in the MINDAT locality Photo Gallery with a September, 2018 photo by Dr. Moreton. The crystal isolation is over the top on this beauty. Valued at $1750-2000 for quality and rarity.
