Description

    Fluorite
    Bahama Pod
    Denton Mine
    Hardin County
    Illinois, USA

    This is a huge example of classic Illinois Fluorite. This spellbinding mineral displays the quintessential cubic form with a purple hue and good luster. In addition, there are a few scatterings of grayish Sphalerite adding dimension to this towering specimen. The overall piece is impactful due to its sheer size and form. The periphery on some of the crystals is translucent, but, overall, the piece is bold and opaque. The specimen is in excellent condition and came from a famous American locality known for producing highly collectible minerals. The Lot is accompanied by a custom acrylic base.
