Fluorite - classic British yellow
Hilton Mine, Scordale, Hilton Escarpment District, Murton, Eden
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
5.7 x 4 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
new year 2021

A nice cluster of gemmy and sharp Fluorite cubes from the famed Hilton Mine, collected in 1974 by Les Hitchings. The crystals are quite clear, transparent and undamaged. The largest cubes are over 1.2 CM across and have a vivid fluorescence as is typical of much Fluorite from this region. The Hilton Mine was of great importance to mineral collectors as it was the source for lemon-yellow Fluorites which were quite distinct and different from most other British locales. A very nice yet more affordable specimen of this classic material.
