Item Description

An unusual specimen of fluorite, as this habit is rare for the locale. These fat, translucent, slightly pastel greenish crystals are to 2.75 cm across. The rightmost has a little damage atop, but it still shows well overall. The fluorites are perched on a curving bit of quartz cavity, that serves as host for a 2 cm galena crystal underneath. The galena is partially altered to anglesite, as are many from this locality. Interesting combination piece, overall!
