Description

    Fluorite
    Bahama Pod
    Denton Mine
    Hardin County
    Illinois, USA

    Cubic Fluorite is one of the most popular minerals around, and cubic Fluorite with "phantoms" from Illinois is at the top of the list in the collecting community. This impressive example has an amazing purple coloration with even better phantoms. When lit from behind, this piece really comes to life. A pair of large partial crystals intermingle at a 45-degree angle creating the drama of this specimen. Both crystals exhibit lavender phantoms with multiple banding. No connoisseur will be disappointed by this mineral specimen that comes with a custom acrylic base for display.
