    Fluorescent Mineral Sphere
    Sterling Mine, Sterling Hill

    New Jersey, USA


    This undeniably attractive material has been cut and polished into a stunning sphere. This planetary-esque sphere features bright orange Calcite interspersed with specks of bright green Willemite. A lot of rough fluorescent material would have been needed to create this sizable orb. This medium sized sphere is in excellent condition and exhibits a nice cut and polish with a dense heavy weight.
