Item 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 octahedral group of Fluorite with partial surface etching that makes for an attractive small cabinet display specimen from this famous New Hampshire mine. The piece is nearly a complete "floater" as it's partially recrystallized on the back / bottom where it detached from the pocket, but it's totally complete. The piece is INCREDIBLY gemmy in the center (virtually WATER CLEAR), and would yield a few very good gemstones, but it's too nice of a specimen to cut. Specimen weight is 128.09 grams (640.45 carats). BETTER IN PERSON, very difficult to photograph. Valued at $900 in the inventory.
