Item Description

Here we have one of the great classics from the United States. Some of the most colorful and stunning Fluorite specimens ever found in the United States (or virtually any world locality) are those from Hardin County, Illinois. This district produced literally tons upon tons of some of the finest quality, multi-colored Fluorite the world has ever seen. This specimen features a handful of sharp, gemmy golden and purple cubic "phantom" crystal of Fluorite free of matrix. The piece is dotted by small golden metallic Marcasite crystals. The quality is good for the material, though it is contacted on the base where it was removed from the pocket wall. The largest crystal measures 6.0 cm on edge. Like all specimens from this area, the color always looks better in sunlight, and the crystals are more vibrant when viewed outdoors. This area is completely closed down and there will never be any more Fluorite mined there. A colorful and gemmy specimen of this well known material.
