Gorgeous specimen featuring golden Calcite crystals clustered atop deep blue Fluorite!
This is a stunner, with vivid blue Fluorite cubes topped by glassy crystals of golden Calcite. The largest Fluorite at bottom measures 4.3 cm in size and is highly lustrous. It is complete on all sides with stepped faces along the back side, possibly the result of an some pocket etching which has rehealed. Golden Calcites climb upwards along both the left and right
edges of the Fluorites, before appearing as a cluster of larger gem crystals at the very top. This is a wonderful combination piece which is in excellent condition with no detractions.
From the Annabel Lee Mine, Harris Creek Sub-District, Hardin County, Illinois.
