Sharp cubes up to 0.9 cm cover the face of this specimen. The crystals have a pale yellow color core with a thin purple internal phantom. This is a little unusual for the english fluorite that I typically see. (I did purchase it along with several other specimens from an English field collector). It is from Boltsburn Mine Flats, Rookhope, Durham Co., England.
This specimen is from Minerva #1 Mine, Hardin Co., Cave-In-Rock, Illinois. The witherite is well crystallized with a dull waxy lustre. The rather large grouping displays prominately against the grey matrix. A small transluscent fluorite sits perched on one side of the witherite grouping. Two older collection labels accompany our label.
