Description:These might be the most famous Fluorites from any locality in New England. These specimens are well-known among collectors for the excellent form, size, rich color and gemminess. This piece is a lovely RICH green color octahedron of Fluorite with partial surface etching that makes for an attractive small cabinet from this famous New Hampshire mine. The piece is incredibly gemmy in the center, and would yield a large gemstone - conservatively 125 carats - which priced at a mere $20 per carat could be valued at $2,500. The piece is complete on the display side, but does show a cleavage on the back. Specimen weight is 160.39 grams (801.95 carats).
