Fluorite - Carthage corner habit
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
5.8 x 2.4 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $340
new year 2021

A very delicate, perfectly etched Fluorite corner from the great Elmwood Mine. For some strange reason this rare habit of selective etching and re-crystallization of Fluorite corners was not so rare in Elmwood, these are named for the locale. This example is an unusually slender, complete, undamaged specimen that is impressive on all sides. The overall Fluorite corner is a light purple but much of the piece is closer to a white. A mineralogical marvel.
