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.
Interesting specimen from Sweet Home Mine, Alma Mining District, Park Co., Colorado, USA. The large rhodocrosite showing on the bottom corner of this specimen is cleaved. However, there is a ribbon of lovely red rhodochrosite rhombs draped across the top of the matrix. Individual rhombs are up to 0.6 cm in length. The balance of matrix face has small quartz and pyrite crystals scattered across it.
